The Last Lecture is a great book for high school students. For the past few years, I have been using the book with high school seniors. The content of the book lends itself to many personal reflection activities that most of the students seem to enjoy.
Here is a writing prompt that I share with the students.
“We cannot change the cards we are dealt, just how we play the hand.” (page 17)
Explain a “tough hand” in life you have been dealt and how you “played the hand.” This hand could be something out of your control – a birth defect, divorce, accident, moving – or something you controlled – an arrest, a bad grade, a bad decision. In your answer
a. Explain the “hand”
b. Explain “how you played it”
c. Describe how you feel about how you played it
