We are nearing the end of our unit on Feed. I know some of out there are curious about the different assignments we are working on on in class. I also know there are some teachers here who are looking to plan their own units around this fantastic novel. Below I've included the different discussion questions and activities and tasks we did in my class for this unit. For the most part, our discussion around this novel has been sporadic. We are talking about many topics from the environmental destruction in the book, the effects of the technology, the politics in the book, as well as the interpersonal relationships between our characters. We will be closing this unit with a focus on privilege and how it affects the outcome, especially the climax of the novel. For students in my class. This is the first time they have discussed privilege and the role in plays in life. I hope the make the connections between their lives and those of the characters in the book.
