"In this lesson, students begin their exploration of H.G. Bissinger’s Friday Night Lights. Students consider key details in the text in order to explore how H.G. Bissinger begins to develop a portrait of Mike Winchell, with a focus on how Bissinger constructs Mike's relationship with his father, Billy, as well as the community of Odessa, and how these relationships influence Mike’s self-perception as a man and as an athlete.
