I really liked the selection "Lost Sister".
This poem used lots of imagery and cultural
connections. I felt that the poem was about the
disconnection you feel when you lose touch with your
family and culture. Even though you want to go away
from home and make a new beginning and leave your own
footsteps in the world - you still long for the things
that are familiar to you. I felt this depicted what
many immigrants must have felt when arriving in
America. She felt excited at the prospect of a new and
betterlife, but she was also confused, alienated, and
angry. This would also be good to use when studying
immigration in American/World History.

The story "All Gone" dealt with murder and violence
in an urban city. It explored what happened after
the man was murdered,how his girlfriend dealt with
life after his death. I liked the comment made by one
of the presenters as to what other things were all
gone in the story. Also, I identified with another
of the presenters comments, "Your my friend, you tell
my story." I felt both of these pieces were well
written and thought provoking. I am looking forward
to presenting them to my class.
