Call Me By Your Name Lesson Plan

Notes to the Teacher

Call Me By Your Name deals with mature issues of sex and sexuality that can be sensitive and difficult to explore in a classroom setting. You may want to pick and choose the lesson material you feel your class will be most comfortable with. You may also want to make some time and space for guided discussions about the book’s themes and how to talk about them with sensitivity and compassion. Themes of homosexuality may be deeply personal for some students, and you may want to offer access to resources for additional support.

The thought questions in this lesson plan provide material and ideas that students can use to write short original essays and to develop their powers of analysis.
