Chapter 2 Lesson 1: How do We Behave as Good Relatives?

Learning Goals:
• To develop a common understanding of stories and truth
• To begin documenting their story with the Where I’m From poem




What is a story?
Why are stories important? Try to come up with multiple reasons (10 minimum would be awesome).
What is truth?


Students will read two Where I’m From poems as a class and then have a brief discussion about them. 
What are the stories in these poems? How do they make you feel?
Teacher will jot down ideas from the discussion on the board.


Students work on their own Where I’m From poems in class.


Students continue to work and review their poems.
