Today, I need you to form groups of 4-5. Each group must lay claim to one of the following topics dealing with events between pages 1-25. Duplication is permitted, but each topic must be chosen:

  • the birthdays: examine the structure and style of the birthday scenarios. How do they feel different from the rest of the text?
  • Who is Eddie Maintenance? What kind of person is Eddie? Gather relevant details from the text.
  • Tension/Suspense: How does Albom create tension in the first 25 pages? Look at word choice, sentence length, and action.
  • Of Faith and God: Compare the Journey section to the Biblical passages considered yesterday.
