12 A Lesson Before Dying TEACHING UNIT INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES 19. Why does Reverend Ambrose think he is more educated than Grant? 20. How is the chapter that Jefferson writes different from the rest of the book? ESSAY – (CHOOSE ANY TWO) 1. The theme of education–learning, teaching, being a teacher, who is educated and why–runs through this novel. Using Grant, Jefferson, Vivian, and Reverend Ambrose, show how the attainment of knowledge influences each person’s life. Giving examples from the story, state whether you think each character is “educated” or not by the end of the novel, and explain your reasoning. 2. Choose two or three characters who deeply influence Grant’s life. Describe each briefly and show, by using several examples from the novel, how each helps Grant learn some important life lessons. 3. Compare and contrast the two main characters in this novel–Grant and Jefferson; be sure to discuss their backgrounds, their personalities, and how each deals with the issues confronting them. 4. “I want a man to go to the chair, on his own two feet” says Aunt Emma very early in the book. The theme of manhood—what makes a man, who really is a man, can one person teach someone else to become a man—is an underlying theme of this novel. Define what you mean when you use the term manhood and then, using both Jefferson and Grant, explain the progress each makes (or does not make) in his development as a man. Use specific examples of what each says and does to show how each progresses. Decide whether you think either or both actually attain manhood by the conclusion of the story.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
