Back-to-Back and Face-to-Face activity
A protocol to share information on a topic...
Find a partner and stand back-to-back with him/her. Be respectful of space.

Wait for the question, opinion, etc. that you will be asked to share with your partner.

Think about what it is you want to share and how you might best express yourself.

When the teacher says, "Face-to-face," turn face your partner, and decide who will share first. This is a great chance to be kind to your partner.

Listen carefully when your partner is speaking and be sure to give him/her eye contact.

When given the signal, find a new partner, stand back-to-back, and wait for your new questions, opinions, etc.

This may be repeated as many rounds as needed/appropriate.

Describe one way that Linda Sue Park (the author) has created different points of view for Nya and Salva. How are the two characters different?
Reread Chapter 2 and keep adding to your Reader's Notes. What new thinking do you have after our Back-to-Back and Face-to-Face discussions?
Prompt 1
In Chapter 1, it says that Salva “was letting his mind wander down the road ahead of his body.” He begins to daydream about when he and his friends “made cows out of clay.” What does this daydream tell you about the importance of cattle in Salva’s life?

Sample response: Cattle are very important in Salva’s life and seemed to be related to wealth or money. The book said that his father had a lot of cattle and his father was an important man. I bet cattle are important because they can provide milk and food.

Prompt 2

In Chapter 2, we learned that thorns littered the ground where Nya is. It says that Nya “looked at the bottom of her foot. There it was, a big thorn that had broken off right in the middle of her heel.” What does the thorn in her heel tell you about Nya? Explain why the thorn tells you this about Nya.
Prompt 3

Where do you think Nya is going? What part of the reading makes you think this? What does this tell you about Nya’s character?
Prompt 4
When the rebel soldiers arrive, Salva hesitates for a moment, but then steps forward to join the group of men. But the soldier says, “Over there” and points Salva to go join the group of women and children. Salva then scurries over to the women’s side. What does Salva’s choice to step forward tell you about Salva’s character?
Prompt 5

In Chapter 2, Salva asks the same questions many times: “Where are we going? Where is my family? When will I see them again?” What does this tell you about how Salva is feeling?
