Short story #1: "Harrison Bergeron"

Before we read "Harrison Bergeron" by Kurt Vonnegut Jr. (p. 1 in Junior Great Books), I'd like you group to discuss what you think of when you hear the word handicap. How would you define it? What do you picture of when you hear the word?



Click on "Harrison Bergeron" in the sidebar to the right. Save the Word document in your "Short Stories" folder inside your "LA" folder.

Open the document after you save it and answer the questions on the worksheet, using the reading strategy discussed on the worksheet: making predictions while you read.


Honors: When you finish, go to and write three facts about the author at the bottom of your worksheet.
