Language Objective: I will generate claims and collect evidence on Chapter 5 of Hermann Hesse's Siddhartha.
Essential Question: How can self-generated claims serve as guiding questions for your reading? What evidence can you find to back up or disprove your claim?
1. Read your Quarter 2 book for 10 minutes.
2. What claims can we make about Siddhartha so far?
A claim is a position about a person, place or thing. Claims need to clearly state your position in one complete sentence.
3. Make a prediction:
After years of emptiness and trying to “rid [himself] of the Self, to conquer it” (p. 38), what do you think Siddhartha is going to do next? What is his logical next step?
Back up your claims.
4. Read, Siddhartha Chapter 5: Kamala (p. 45-61)
Use one of the claims you generated earlier as your guiding question. Find evidence to back up or disprove your claim
Every three pages, stop as a group and:
- ask a question
- make a connection or comment
5. After reading:
Do you think Siddhartha will find what he is looking for in the material world? Why or why not?
