Interpreting the Story: Focus on Characterization

The inner drive, ambition, and obsession of the complex main character in Brennan Stasiewicz’s “Prophets,” are the focus of a post-reading discussion.

Discussion questions and extensions are included with the plan. The story is readily available on the Internet.
