"The Missing Piece Meets the Big O": An EFL Lesson Using Shell Selverstein's Story

Shel Silverstein's story of a missing piece searching for its perfect match to help him "roll" is a highly moving and educating one. For those of you who haven't read it it is a lesson on relying on ourselves and understanding that nothing can really fulfill us if we are not able to feel complete from within.  Here is a reading comprehension lesson where the students watch the story on Youtube and get to fill in an open cloze summary ending with a discussion on "missing pieces".
