The Man in the Well

This week in class, we’re reading “The Man in the Well” by Ira Sher.

Ira Sher is a contemporary author who writes short fiction. In this story, a man in a vulnerable position asks a group of children for help.

As we read, we will be discussing the themes of Morality and Power & Greed as they relate to the text. We are trying to answer these big questions :

“Why do people do bad things?” and “How does power corrupt?”
