This zip file includes two documents.
1. a PDF of three pages of I Will Always Write Back with some underlining on my part.
2. a Word document with a chart asking students to think about "culture shock" and then analyze the differences from the text in African and American culture.
This is an excellent text to text connection for any book with a thematic focus of the impact of culture. I am using it also in conjunction with the Holt McDougal textbook, Collections for 8th grade.
Other novels that I am pairing this with include: The Latehomecomer, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, The Joy Luck Club, I Am Malala and A Long Way Gone.
