Write a response to one of the following stories
Journey to Ompah – We read this in class and many of you started a response to it so this should be your go-to task.
I’m Still Here – A stubborn man won’t leave his home. We worked on this in class. It’s a rich story about home, family, and land.
The Floating Life – This apocalyptic short story is about ship stranded at sea. It’s not zombies and Mad Max though. It’s a student and teacher trying to make sense of their worlds.
Everyday Use – A short story by Alice Walker who we read earlier in the year. It’s a complicated family relationship that explores tradition, tragedy, and race.
