Drawing on Alice Walker’s “Everyday Use”:

  • 1/ Write a descriptive contrast of two very contrasting people in your own family.
  • 2/ Explain why you think Dee or Mama value their heritage the most.

Drawing on Henry Lawson’s “Sweeney” and “The Loaded Dog”

  • Write a few Stanzas that imitate Henry Lawson’s style of writing. Chose as a focus someone you know from your own life as subject
  • In a short paragraph tell the story of the “Loaded Dog”. Why is the Dog  “loaded”?
