What other apocalyptic stories (books, short narratives, films...) do you know? How are they similar to/different from The Road? Is the author/director trying to teach us the same lessons--or different lessons? You could use The Giver, WALL-E, and/or any other stories you know. This is a picture from the movie Book of Eli, which we will watch if a student acquires it (it's in our library). Write 300+ words today to compare and contrast.
