Product Description
Watch Thou for the Mutant!

This lesson explores the use (or misuse) of religion of The Chrysalids, opening up students’ understanding to how prejudice and hate creeps into a society’s belief system. A close-reading of Nicholson’s Repentances will facilitate class discussion as compared to Christianity’s/Judaism's Ten Commandments and other religious/spiritual aphorisms from around the world. The cornerstones of this lesson are the in-class discussion and the worksheet where students respond to questions regarding Waknuk's religious tenets. Further, this lesson adds to any social justice curriculum that may be required by a district (e.g., anti-bullying, importance of routing out intolerance).

Included in this 21-page .pdf document:
- A detailed minimum 65-minute lesson plan (five pages) that can be segmented, along with extension activities.
- One-page worksheet listing Waknuk's Religious Tenets and 14 thought-prokoving written response questions (to be started in class and finished for homework).
- Nine small poster-sized versions of all of Waknuk's religious tenets, suitable for posting around the classroom and for use in the lesson.
- Two small poster-sized copies of the Ten Commandments
- One small poster-sized collection of religious/spiritual aphorisms from around the world
- One small poster-sized visual chart to understand the difference between Deviations, Offences, and Blasphemies
(The posters are all versions of slides that can be found in the PowerPoint below.)

I also have a Microsoft PowerPoint presentation available which complements this lesson; it is an optional, not essential, accompaniment to this lesson plan and worksheet activity:
