Transcript of M1U2L8 ANALYZING THE CONTENT OF A MODEL ESSAY:

" End of Unit 2 Assessment Prompt":
Consider the meaning of the novel’s title,
Inside Out & Back Again
.
How does this title relate to the universal refugee experience of fleeing and finding home
, and
in what ways is Ha’s experience an example of this universal experience
?

Your end of unit assessment will be an essay in which you respond to this question by finding the strongest evidence to connect the experiences of the character Ha with the experiences of real-life refugees in informational texts.
Any time you write in response to a prompt, it is important to take time to fully understand what the prompt is asking. (For example: When we go over our learning targets each day.)

Circle the word
universal
, which has been a focus throughout the unit. Underline the word part
univers
.
* How does the word universal relate to the word universe?
* What does the prefix ‘
uni
-’ mean?

Concrete example to show how physically fleeing home is related to being turned inside out, and how physically finding a new home is related to coming “back again":

When Ha is in Alabama, she is no longer fleeing home—she is beginning to find home; however, she is still turning inside out because she doesn’t understand anything and the other children are mean to her when she first starts school. She only really turns ‘back again’ when she begins to settle in by making friends and understanding the language.
Introducing the Assessment Prompt
Introducing the Assessment Prompt
Transitioning from the Physical Fleeing and Finding Home to the
Emotional “Inside Out” and “Back Again”
Assessment Prompt:

Consider the meaning of the novel’s title, Inside
Out & Back Again
.

How does this title relate to the universal refugee experience of fleeing and finding home,
and

in

what ways is Ha’s experience an example of this universal experience?

• Underline the phrases

Inside Out

and “
Back Again
.”


What do you think it means to turn ‘
inside out
,’ as the title of the novel suggests?

Turning inside out is everything changing and things becoming challenging—feeling very confused and uncertain.


What does it mean to turn ‘
back again
,’ as the title of the novel suggests?

Everything settling down and going back to normal. Feeling more comfortable and less confused.

We are going to connect refugees’ universal experience of fleeing and finding home (leaving a country and going somewhere new) to the universal emotional experience of being turned “inside out” and then coming “back again” just as Ha does in the novel.
