Paul’s Portfolio

Paragraph 1: Who are you? What's important to know about you? What ethnic and cultural heritages are in your family? Where were you born, and what neighborhoods have you lived in? What schools have you been to? When did something important happen to you, a turning point?

Paragraph 2: What do you like to do IN school, including extra-curricular activities? What are you good at in school? What do you enjoy doing OUT of school? What are you particularly good at? How did you get good at it? What movies, shows, cartoons, games, books have you enjoyed - when you were a small child? and now?

Paragraph 3: Tell us about your family members - those who are most precious to you - those you've lost, and those you've gained. Who are you lucky to have in your life?

Why isn't the embed showing?

Right. It might be interesting to imagine and recreate a conversation between Dee and her boyfriend in the car on the way to her mother and sister. How would Dee prepare Hakim for this visit?

Right. So Dee is connecting to these African tradition while disconnecting from her family and local traditions.

Funny, I get a different feeling from this sentence. I think it is saying that Dee ACTED like you can't say “no” to her, not that it never happened. So that means that she is confident and personally forceful, not that she is lucky. See what I mean?

Suggested Revision

Wait… the narrator, the mother, is saying that Maggie thinks her sister could do anything she wants to do in life — never accepting “no” from anybody. Do you see that?

Voting too? Go Joe.

Stay awake, Ted! This is about wht is happening in your state.

Immigration! He is hitting everything.

What's wrong with becoming confrontational, Joe?
