Window on Poverty
Photograph by Yap Kh, National Geographic Your Shot
Amid the haze of toxic fumes from burning garbage, in an atmosphere filled with the overpowering stench of rotting waste and surrounded by millions of restless flies flitting ceaselessly, a young garbage scavenger from a swarm of Cambodia’s most destitute people fights to survive, writes Your Shot member Yap Kh. They search, Kh says, for scraps of recyclables in newly dumped loads of rubbish. “Covered in filthy rags, they were scruffy, sickly, and sad. They earned 4,000 riel ($1) a day—if they were lucky.”
Period 4: ENGLISH 20
I can read for meaning.
I can answer questions in relation to comprehension.
LIGHTS OFF. On the floor. You are a fly… BE ONE WITH A FLY!
I will finish Chapter 1 for Luke. (Great reading Luke).
Let’s discuss as a class.
1. What does the main character uncover about her brother that causes her to state, “I’m smiling, because for a moment I love my brother again” (pg. 3)?
Aside from the obvious- what does her discovery infer about her brother?
2. Why do you think Rune Michaels uses the example of earthquakes to describe the aftermath of a brother-sister fight?
3. The main character states, “I’m broken. But nobody’s trying to fix me.” …
4. Why do you think it could be a bad idea to stay in a house that obviously has history for Brian and the main character?
5. Why do you think Michaels leaves out the main characters real name, when she easily could have introduced it within the conversation between Aunt Phoebe and Mrs. Foster?
I would like you all to get a picture of what you think Leia looks like. Hand in your screen shot to Google Classroom and I will print and we will see how our ‘idea of what she looks like’ evolves and changes.
Ideas for FINAL FIX ME projects.
Don’t stress these are not due till after the book is done but if you want to start thinking about it now… go ahead!
Additional PROJECT ideas:
- Describe at least one significant problem Leia faces and discuss how he dealt with that problem. Use details from the story to support your ideas.2. Make up 5 interview questions for Leia, along with choosing 3 to answer how you think SHE would respond.
3. Draw a map of the zoo the depicts how Leia feels about each of the places.
4. Tell what happened before the story began.
5. Write a different ending for the story.
6. Where do you think each of the characters will be in 5, 15, 25 years?
7. Your character calls into a radio show for advice. Choose which show your character would call in to and then create the conversation he or she would have with the radio advice giver.
8. Think about all the kinds of mementos you would put in a scrapbook for your character, cutting out pictures from magazines or drawing the mementos he or she would have in a scrapbook.
9. Write an opinion column like those that appear on the editorial page of the newspaper. Choose a theme or topic from the novel you just read and write the column from the point of view of one of the characters. Your character might write about the importance of education or why we should accept people who are not like us.
10. Write a poem that captures the essence of the novel.
Hagen will read. Chapter 2 and then we will discuss the following questions.
*Transfer these into your Fix Me notes.
1. Why is the following quotation significant to what we are learning about the main character, “They’re real people- they have trains to catch, taxis to hunt down, places to be, things to do. They leave tips… (pg. 13)
2. Predicition: How do you think the main character knows the stranger in the coffee shop? Did she overreact? What do you think she is afraid of?
