*The biggest misunderstanding
*The difficult decision
Yesterday, we read the short story “A Teacher’s Rewards”.
Things to look at….
- What are some of the ideas about school life that the author is asking us to consider?
- A motif in literature is a recurring image or idea that runs through a piece of writing. In this story, the motif of ‘hands’ is ever-present. Look at he story again and note how many times ‘hands’ occurs.
- “For once, he finished something.” The story ends there, but Ms. Scofields life may not. What do you think happened to Ms. Scofield? What are three possible outcomes?
