"Test of Manhood"

Jonah Steinberg’s frame story about a young man’s initiation into manhood provides readers an opportunity to consider the demands of their own cultural and family traditions. Rorik, the main character of the fable, feels unworthy of his quest and of wielding the magical sword bequeathed to him by his father.  The discussion questions enable readers to make personal connections to the tale. Pre- and post-reading activities, vocabulary and grammar exercises, and a reading check are included. The text of the story can be downloaded from the Internet.
