This copy of "The Dead" includes vocabulary in the order various words and terms appear in the story. It also includes a list of 77 analytical questions to go with the text. They are organized by the pages the answers (or at least in part) can be found. After the reading of "The Dead" and a discussion of the text, groups can be formed with questions being bundled and assigned. With this method, each group contains a piece of the puzzle and when presented in class to the whole, everyone takes notes and gets a holistic perspective of the story. It is recommended to inform the students that you will be pulling 10-20 questions from the list "at random" for an open-note quiz afterwards so the better the notes, the better they'll do. The questions should be carefully selected by the teacher based on the particular students in the class. The questions for groups can be assigned in any number of ways based on the class, time, and teacher preferences. # 28 and #69 are doozies so students may need some help with the research or investigation there, but they are WELL worth the effort!
