This is a set of developmental vocabulary lessons to accompany The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini. Because so many words and concepts are rooted in Afghani culture, this has been an essential companion to the novel. The document is 18 pages, organized in three sections (assignments), and the assigned words follow the chronology of the book. I used this with juniors and seniors; it might also work with post-secondary. The document is editable.
