Finally, for your checkpoint piece, let’s revisit the snippet from the start of the lesson. Write your version of James McBride’s snippet, where he makes a new friend.
Remember, it can be based on your own experience, or made up, but it should:
- set the scene - meeting someone important for the first time
- include a little dialogue - share some feelings about the situation
- judge important aspects of the person or situation
- explain why all of this was significant to you (or, if you’re making it up, the narrator).
