Book: Keena Ford and the Second-Grade Mix-Up by Melissa Thomson pp. 18 – 28
Describe the relationship between Keena and her father.
What is a compromise? Does Keena fully understand what it means to make a compromise?
What does the detail "he looked at me like I was a little bit crazy" mean? What does the description show about Keena's dad?
Why does Keena like going to the coffee shop with her father?
Why does Keena not want to be in a class with all girls?
What advice does Keena's dad give her? Why?
For this target task students need to reference the conversation that Keena and her father have about the fact that she and Eric are in different classes. This conversation shows that he is supportive and that he tries to offer guidance and advice even if he isn't around all the time.
