In this lesson, students begin their analysis of an excerpt of H. G. Bissinger’s Friday Night Lights. Students read pages 73–76 of the chapter “Dreaming of Heroes,” in which Bissinger introduces high school football star Mike Winchell and his relationship with his father, Billy. Students analyze how Bissinger constructs Mike's relationship to his father Billy, as well as the community of Odessa, and how these relationships develop central ideas in the text.
