P a g e | 4 To the instructor: We are pleased to offer this study guide to help you as you plan and teach your UNIV 110 First Year Experience course. The purpose of this study guide is to help you help your students engage deeply with the 2011 Big Read book, Rebecca Skloot’s The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. For each chapter in the book, there are at least four objective comprehension questions and two open-ended discussion questions. We have also included comprehension and discussion questions on the prefatory elements that come before the body chapters in the book. This study guide is based on two simple but important principles: The most important educational goals of the Big Read cannot be accomplished unless students first read and understand the text. The comprehension questions encourage students to read the text carefully and help them read for understanding. Open-ended discussion questions help students to apply critical thinking and creative skills to the text and encourage students to see reading as a generative activity and not simply as a means of extracting static information from a text.
