Due Today: Rough draft of Report and Annotated Bibliography
Introduction to Sandra Cisneros
Have you ever read anything by Sandra Cisneros before this class?
Did anybody look here up? What did you find out? Her books were banned in Arizona. Why do you think they banned them?
Why are we reading her stories in a composition class? How is this different from our previous readings?
If you were Rachel, what would you have done?
To answer this, write a dialogue between Rachel and Mrs. Price. Begin your dialogue with:
Mrs. Price: Of course the sweater’s yours. I remember you wearing it once.
Continue the dialogue any way you want.
