The Chocolate War Teaching Unit
Excerpt From this Document
- What kind of a person is Archie? Brother Leon? How are their personalities alike? How do they differ?
- How would you describe Jerry?
- Would it have been better if Jerry had agreed to sell the chocolates after the 10 days were up. Why or why not?
- Explain what The Vigils were? What is their role at Trinity?
- Discuss the progression of the various reactions that the other students had to Jerry’s refusal to sell the chocolates.
- When Jerry compares himself to his father, he realizes that he wants “to do something, be somebody” unlike his father’s limited life. (Pg. 53) And then, “for no reason at all, he thought of Gregory Bailey.” Why do you think Cormier makes the connection between Jerry and Bailey?
- Brian Cochran thinks to himself, “Was Leon right, after all? That the school was more important than any one kid? But weren’t individuals important, too?” (Pg. 166) Do you agree with this statement? Defend your answer.
- Only three of the five central characters are really developed through the novel: Brother Leon, Emile Janza, and Archie. The reader learns about Jerry gradually and Roland Goubert is merely sketched. What characteristics do the other three have in common? Why do you think their characters are most fully developed?
