Seuss and Silverstein: Posing Questions, Presenting Points

In this lesson, classic stories from children’s authors Dr. Seuss and Shel Silverstein provide the ideal springboard for struggling readers to discuss relevant social issues. Working in small groups, students select and read books or short stories from the provided list of relevant texts. Students may use the interactive Literary Elements Map to explore the conflict in their selected texts. The group then prepares critical thinking questions and leads a class discussion about the issues raised in the story. As a class, students can discuss how these issues relate to the conflicts and social issues in their own lives.
