Welcome to week 2! We are going to continue building our community and studying identity this week with our mini "Where I'm From" project. We will set up some classroom structures, like our Reading Response Journal, and then we'll jump into writing poetry and exploring the essential questions: Where are you from? and How has where you're from shaped who you are today?
