As we finish our first novel of the semester titled Inside Out and Back Again, students are given one final extra credit opportunity. This task will be worth 10 points, ultimately maintaining or raising your grade. Together in class, students have examined closely all of Ha’s Poems which give the reader a synopsis of her daily life experiences as a child and refugee. We, the readers have experienced Ha’s challenges, as well as humorous and happy moments throughout the course of the novel. Students are to compose five individual free verse poems that express their days as a middle school student.
