we wear the mask

we began today by revisiting yesterday's exit ticket. because many students did not include some important information in their summary of the 70X project, we created a list of important facts about the project before students revised their summaries. next, we discussed our responses to the excerpt from 'farewell to manzanar' and charted them (below). after discussing why people label others, we did a read-aloud of african-american poet paul lawrence dunbar's 1896 poem we wear the mask and discussed how each of us chooses to share parts of our identity and to hide other parts, depending on who we're with.

answer questions on the back of 'we wear the mask' worksheet (due 9/26)
