Discussion Questions

1. What did Marco tell the men who wanted him to kill the Khan or King? ('I'd rather die with honour than live with shame.') 
2. What does it mean to be a person of honour? (One who always chooses to do the right thing; truthful, keeps their promises, never cheats or steals, trustworthy.)
3. If the men were speaking the truth to Marco, about how he was risking his life every day and only being paid a tenth of what he was worth, should he have joined them in killing the king? (No. It's better to be cheated than to become a murderer.)
4. If Marco had been angry with the king for not allowing him to go home, what decision might he have been tempted to make? (To lure the Khan to his death.)
5. What did Marco Polo's father teach him? ('My Father always taught me, there is a peace that comes with being honest.') What does this mean?
6. Marco waited patiently for the Khan to change his mind. How was he rewarded? (Allowed to go home safely, with a large treasure.)
7. Why did the Khan pay Marco so much after cheating him for so long by paying him too little for the danger he was in? ('To pay you any less would be dishonest, and he wanted to die in peace.') Who taught him that peace comes from being honest? (Marco)
8. What does this teach us about our choices? (They can change how we feel and influence those around us.)
