Questions Teenagers Don’t Want to Answer

English 10 students are reading The Absolutely True Diary of A Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie. We chose the comic from p. 128 in the novel and students made up their own 6 square comic based on a question they really didn’t want to answer. They followed the format of the original where the character, Junior, 1) repeats the question 2) says No, 3) says Yes, 4) purposely misunderstands the question, 5) purposely tries to confuse the listener, and 6) gives an excuse to avoid answering.

I am passionate about teaching reading and writing to a diverse audience from those experiencing challenges in reading and writing to those who seek deep enrichment in literature and its connections to the world in which it was written and to the present day. I also present workshops on assessment for learning, differentiated instruction, literature circles, disciplinary literacy, and inquiry.
