3. How do you think a person could explore his/her untapped potential and then use that potential?

Essay Topic 2

Anakin makes a conscious decision to play the Good Samaritan, and look after this fallen human being, part of a group reviled by Anakin's own society. A careful reader will quickly realize that the significance of this incident rests in the change it works on Anakin, making him realize through a life experience that there may be more to other human beings than their superficial exterior and their reputation among one's own kind.

1. What do you think is meant by this statement? Use examples from the book to support your answer.

2. How do you think this statement might be used in the problems in modern America and people who are discriminated against?

3. Write a short scene of what you would do if you came across in injured person whom you did not like.

Essay Topic 3

Now when the battle is about to begin and suspense and excitement need to be heightened, the author makes maximum use of separated lines of action, dividing the conflict into four parts. The chief advantage of this division of action is that at a high point in the action, the outcome of a critical conflict can be left unresolved in favor of a switch to a different line of action, thus continually escalating the suspense felt by a reader or an audience.

1. Do you think that separating the action does indeed escalate the tension? Why or why not?

2. Do you think it's confusing to divide the action into separate parts? Why or why not?
