Of the 9 Vignette’s you will read tonight: Pick one vignette and write a short 1 paragraph response paper about it. You may write about your personal feelings, relate it to something that has happened to you or someone you know, etc. In another paragraph you must also explain what the theme of the chosen chapter is and support your idea with evidence from the text. This will be collected at the beginning of the next class period.

Homework: Write a description of your home, mirroring the description in Chapter One and using the elements of the style of a vignette. Write about the physical description of your home, as well as briefly mention any family members who live with you. Describe what ‘home’ means to you. Be sure to answer the following questions: Does your home make you who you are/define you? How does it affect your identity? Does it depict your culture? You should accompany this with either a photograph or a drawn picture of your home.
