*Research:  Have students research everything from mountaineering to the 5 Pillars of Islam.  Help them generate a list of appropriate topics.

*Purposeful writing:  Have students write persuasively, reflectively, and informatively about issues that arise from the book.

*Reflection:  Have students respond to what they read and what they discuss in class.
