Franz Kafka's ~'The Metamorphosis~' will be many students' first encounter with existential literature. This lesson offers discussion questions that will help them make sense of the final part of the novel.

Reading The Metamorphosis Together

By the time your students are reading Part Three of The Metamorphosis, you have already worked through many of the challenges associated with the text. Students are likely curious as to what is going to become of Gregor and the Samsa family, not to mention what commentary Kafka is trying to make about life and living.

To help students make sense of the novel's final section, you will want to leave them plenty of opportunities for discussion. Working together, students can really make the novel meaningful and construct a mutual understanding of its themes and messages. The open-ended questions in this lesson will help you facilitate meaningful discussions about Part Three of The Metamorphosis.
