11/4 continued
  • What did you think of the ending of Ender’s Game? Were you surprised? Angry? Interested?
  • What did you think of the book, overall?
  • What did you do this weekend? Did you see the movie? If you did—tell me how you think it compared to the book. If not, just tell me about the weekend. If you can’t think of anything to say, continue with the story you started about the bear.

Do you think the ends always justify the means? That is—if some get hurt to help the greater good, is that okay? Can you think of a time where you or someone you know did something “wrong” in order to attain a greater good? A better outcome? For example, is it okay to be super strict—maybe even a little mean—when training a dog? What are some other situations where it may be okay to do harm to some if the outcome for most is better? Another example could be when the United States used atomic bombs on Japan during World War II.

Was the IF correct in their treatment of Ender? Explain.

  • Are you the person you want to be? Do you do and say the things you think the person you want to be would do and say? How do you become the person you envision for yourself?
  • How does this relate to Ender—do you think he is the person he wants to be?
  • Use examples from the text! Page numbers! So you can go back and find the examples.

  • Lord Acton, a British historian said, “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.”
  • How does this apply to Ender’s Game? Where has power corrupted a character, and where has a character resisted that corruption? How has Ender been treated by those in power, and how has Ender used his power?

Use examples!

We’ve had this prompt before, but now I want you to consider how the government is using Ender. Use examples from the book to support your reasoning.

Not thinking specifically about the United States, but thinking about governments in general, what do you think a government’s responsibility to its people—that is, to protect and provide for—is? Is honesty and disclosure a necessary part of this responsibility? Are all governments (or people in places of authority) honest? For example, does a government have the right to tell you how many children you are allowed to have, or if you are allowed to own guns, or what religion to practice?
