I am looking forward to Mawi Asgedom’s visit. Check out this video to see how he is evolving as an educator since his publication “Of Beetles & Angles.” For homework, let’s remember our summer reading assignment and start a large blog roll here. Consider one of the following prompts. In your 5-7 sentence response, please use Standard English and follow all the rules for proper usage.
1. Window: explain how one passage, situation, or character (supply page number, too) opened up a new world and provided a new insight as to how you may appreciate your life.
2. Mirror: explain how one passage, situation, or character (supply page number, too) reflected an aspect of yourself.
3. Moment of gratitude for a soft spoken person. Mawi Asgedom dedicated Of Beetle & Angels to his mother. Locate and explain what passage informs you of this dedication of gratitude that Mawi has for his mother.
Later in class let’s discuss the subtle moment of profound influence on page 114. Describing his freshman year in high school, Mawi Asgedom recounts how “one word of encouragement change[d]” his life.
