Goals: To use evidence and analysis to support and develop claims about a text in an academic discussion
Opener: It’s time to get philosophical! Re-read the passage on p.21. Imagine this is not just a story about a group of Jewish Romanians on a train platform, but rather a story about all human beings and about the big, important ideas that connect all of us. What deep, meaningful, and universal ideas about human nature and the world does this passage help develop? If you failed to look it up when you were reading the first time, please make sure you add the meaning of the word “conflagration” to your notes (it means a very large and destructive fire).
