Besides learning about immigration and separation, I feel as though students whose parents are not immigrants will still empathize with Saya’s family. They will read about how much Saya misses her mother and how difficult it is for them to communicate. Students can also see how Saya’s father persevered and did not give up on trying to get the story of Saya’s mother to the public through writing letters. Students can learn about the importance of speaking up and not staying silent, since Saya’s letter led to giving her mother’s case coverage and eventually having her mother released from the corrections facility. I do believe there are multiple things that students can learn by using this book, and that an activity on storytelling and writing letters can be used in a lesson plan with the

In Vietnam people participate in the traditional rituals of their culture and that is how other people are able to define the identity of the Vietnam people. In the story the boy and his mother has much love for each other that more people in America should have. Many people go through times that make it hard for them to know who they need to be in life this day and time many children at a very young age have to make a decision of which road they would like to take. The story throughout shows how people can rebel to find their own identity instead of being a part of what everyone else is a part of. We should always make our own decisions instead of being a follower we should be a
This can be seen when Lennie and George are discussing their ambitions, and George explains “We’d have plenty of rabbits to eat and sell. An’ we’d keep a few pigeons to go flyin around the win’ mill like they done when I was a kid” (58). Animals like the rabbits are a key part in their dream because they supply money and food. Moreover, the pigeons remind George of freedom and his childhood. In order to cheer Lennie up, George discusses their hopeful future by saying “We’ll have a cow... An’ we’ll have maybe a pig an’ chickens” (105).
The Chicken: “What’s wrong with breakfast?” The Pig: “For you, that’s involvement. For me, that’s commitment!” That story is super cute and all but there is a hard reality if you want to be a lifelong disciple of Christ, and that reality is commitment. Not only in

He holds the white people accountable and explains how the black race naturally feels compelled to retaliate-sometimes too much. With a white audience in mind, Baldwin uses the form of autobiography to provide a unique insight into the issue social inequality and criticize the people who continue to perpetuate it. Moreover, Baldwin is careful to ensure that his message appeals to the white audience, disallowing them from getting overly defensive or dismissing his work entirely. Baldwin opens his book with a personal letter to his nephew, warning him of the hardships that he would have to face as a black man. His choice to place this letter in the beginning creates a sense of authenticity and built trust between author and reader.
Do the recent events in the United States make you stop and think about the type of people that live and work in our country? Reflecting on poems such as “I Hear America Singing”, by Walt Whitman and “I Too, Sing America”, by Langston Hughes helps us to remember the types of people that have helped America to grow and the hope and optimism the American people value.

The “I Hear America Singing” is a free verse written poem. Whitman wrote the poem to express the life and culture of America.
