8th Grade: Some Considerations

Posted: May 1, 2016 in Home

I hope you are truly finding Franklin’s autobiography enlightening! Here are some guiding ideas to read with:

  • How did the events of Franklin’s life shape his values?
  • What about Franklin’s life surprises you?
  • Is Franklin a good role model for youth today? Why/why not? How?
  • On which occasions do you see an “early aversion to arbitrary power” in this account?
  • How did encounters with Quakers influence Franklin’s life choices and
  • Find occasions when Franklin’s vanity shows.
