Instructor: Shanna Fox

Shanna has been part of the whirlwind world of teaching middle school for 20 years. She has a Master of Education degree in instructional design.

'For One More Day' tracks the emotional journey of Chick Benetto as he travels beyond life and sees his mother on the other side. Use these discussion questions to explore the thematic threads of this novel with your high school students.

For One More Day by Mitch Albom

Charles 'Chick' Benetto serves as the main character, but not the narrator, of Mitch Albom's For One More Day. This emotional tale interweaves Chick's present-day suicide attempt, memories of a difficult childhood, and his commitment to live better. Use these discussion questions to guide your high school students through some important themes, including life and death, relationships, and new beginnings. Consider using these questions to engage students in one-on-one conversations, provide a list of questions to student teams, or hosting a whole group discussion. You may also want to ask students to create a written response to a few questions to serve as an excellent summative assessment.
