This series of eight in-depth writing/discussion prompts asks students to analyze the rhetorical strategies and literary techniques used by Dave Eggers in the nonfiction work Zeitoun. Questions also include prompts regarding characterization, structure, themes, perspective, and images.
Questions are appropriate for grades 10-12 or college-level analysis.
