Hello. My 7th grade class is reading The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. Does
anyone have any ideas for an essay I may give them?

Thanks, Paul

Paul:

I'm not sure I can give you a succint answer, but one thought that comes
to mind is that kids today just can't get away with some of the
shenanigans that Tom and Huck pulled 'back then'. Consider the cases
where school boards have gone ballistic and what you and I would have
considered a harmless prank.

Maybe you could ask the students to pick one episode from the book and
write about what they think would happen to a kid who tried the same
thing today.

Though maybe this idea would be better dealt with in a class discussion
instead of an essay.

Regards, Elsi
