American Born Chinese shares several themes with In the Footsteps of Crazy Horse and The House on Mango Street. Choose one theme that you think Yang’s story has in common with one of those books and write a discussion post that identifies the theme, and explains what each book has to say about that theme, and how they are similar or different. You should use 2-3 quotations in your post, and may include descriptions of Yang’s artwork as well, as relevant.
At the end of your post, ask a question that you have about something in the first 5 chapters of the book. Try to think of a question that can’t be answered by a simple “yes” or “no”.
After you have submitted your discussion post, read through the posts by your classmates and choose one of their questions to answer. Make your answer thorough, and include reasons or an explanation.
