Select one of the four discussion questions from the Book Thief Study Guide. You will then open a GoogleDoc to share with me. In that GoogleDoc, you will need to type the question that you chose and respond to that question using specific details from the text, including page numbers that support your assertions. (Remember to add the heading of your name, my name, Advanced English 8, and today’s date at the top of your response).
When you are finished, go to Google Classroom and do the assignment called “Sports in School.” This is due by the start of class tomorrow.
Discussion Questions (also in your packet):
1. Why do you suppose that Death saw life in terms of color and referred to color in terms of taste? What tastes would you assign to colors such as red, blue, green, yellow, and purple?
2. Why do you think the Hubermanns insisted that Liesel call them “Mama” and “Papa”? Make sure to give evidence from the text and from your own knowledge.
3. Do you think German citizens, such as Alex Steiner or Hans Hubermann, were justified in showing passive acceptance to the Nazi regime? What else might they have done instead?
4. Do you think Liesel’s hostility toward Ludwig Schmeikl was justified? In your opinion, what was the primary cause of her attack?
