Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
This week’s topic: Book-inspired Syllabus
ALL OF YOUR SCHOOLISH PEOPLE HAVE TO GO BACK NOW.
Kara and Lyn take you back, old school style, to celebrate everyone returning to their virtual incarceration, this week’s theme is building an itinerary with our top books to support our topic (yeah, now I am just tossing out academic-sounding words).
Book Discussion Points: For the theme of bullying in this unit, present points in the novel that classify the actions in the book as bullying. Was the student body bullying only gay students? Was there any other marginalized groups that experienced bullying?
Book Discussion Points: List the bullying behaviors used by other students to target the main character of the novel. Did the book talk about “traditional” and “non-traditional” bullying?
Book Discussion Points: How did the community support the bullying of a female rape victim? How can students and the children of the community put an end to victim blaming and bully behavior towards their own peers?
Book Discussion Points: How can you “repent” after committing bullying? The theme of the book was silence to prevent bullying. What other forms of bullying can be prevented by abstaining from a daily routine?
Book Discussion Points: Is bullying rooted in jealousy and guilt? What is your own opinion that each rumor has a grain of truth?
Would you like to take these courses? What books would fit into these classes?
