Among the Hidden #1

On Monday, we begin reading the novel Among the Hidden. Each week, I will post a question or two for you to respond to by that Friday. This weeks questions are due on Oct. 30th.
  1. The author doesn't specify the setting for Among the Hidden. Where do you think it takes place? When do you think it takes place?
  2. Luke's family is terrified of the government. Why? What are some of the tactics the government employs to make ordinary families like his feel powerless?

The Videos Are Coming

Several students have already done their video interviews. As they are completed, I'll be adding them here.

To my students: when you do your interview ask about a person who influenced his or her life, did they know the person, when did they live, how did they influence, etc.
