  • What do you know about the barber’s personality?

  • Is first-person point of view effective for the story? Why?

  • How does the author intend us to feel?

  • Did the barber do the right thing?

  • Would the statement “it’s not easy to kill” be a better title? Why?

  • What did you learn that you may try in your own writing?


Follow up activity

Follow-Up Activity

  • Writing: Thoughts on Both Sides

  • In one column of a two column chart, copy the conflicting thoughts of the barber, and what the captain is thinking in the chair in the other column. What actions and tone would the captain use to reflect the tension he feels?

  • Use the chart to write an epilogue from the perspective of the captain or the barber.

  • Pass in for marks.


Epilogue

Epilogue

  • Write a 1 page “What happens next” in your journal. This will be marked out of 10. Continue the story on from the perspective of the barber, or the perspective of the captain.

  • Think about what happens that night, the next day, the next week, etc. Does the barber go to the school? Do other customers come in? What happens to the captain? Take the reader to the next place in the story.

  • Complete and pass in.
