After reading the first paragraph of Gary Paulsen's historical fiction Stop the Sun, small groups complete a KWL chart about plot elements. After sharing, lead a discussion about Vietnam, showing a map (included) and giving a summarized history of the conflict. There is a paragraph here you can use. Challenge readers with questions on point of view, characterization, genre, and author's purpose. Finally, compare the text with a poem on the same topic (also included).
