Lesson plans for ages 12-14 in Language & Literature
Further sufferings that hit the Rudomin family are described in the homework reading. Ask the students what everyday features, that are troublefree in their own lives, were trials of hardship for the Rudomins (e.g. when students need light, they switch on lights, when they are hungry, and want a snack, they simply raid the fridge or larder. What about the Rudomins?)
How would the students decribe the respective attitudes of the grandmother, the mother and Esther to their situation?
Homework: Students read to the end of the book.
