Lesson Reflection
What percentage of students mastered the aims: _____
Did at least 85% of students master the aim? If not, why not? What are the common errors students are making?
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Did students get enough successful “at bats†… Were there at least 15 minutes of successful independent practice? If not, how could you have structured the class to get more successful practice?
How will I need to change my lesson plans for tomorrow (and beyond) based on today’s lesson? What could I have done differently to get a higher % of mastery or more successful practice?

How My Grandmother Came to the U.S.
by Alexander Agoadoas told by Grace Wilner
By the age of 14, she decided to come to the U.S. because there were more opportunities for women in the U.S. than in Colombia. (Colombian parents usually want their female children to get married and have kids, but not get an education.)  The only problem was that there was no money for her to go to college in America. Her uncle Albert gave her another choice. He told her that if she came to Israel she could go to college for free. But her parents were afraid for her because at that time Israel was at war, so when she was 19, she came to New York and stayed with her cousin for six months to see if she liked it. She did.   When she returned to Colombia, she worked for an airline so that she could earn some money and get a free ticket to the U.S.
 
Finally, when she was 21, she asked her cousin in New York to sponsor her, and he did. Her brother, Morris was already living here in a rented room. My grandmother got a room with them. She got a job as a clerk at a school of dentistry and worked her way up to secretary. She worked there for 2 1/2  years. She got married and had two kids (my mom and her brother). She started college in 1971. Since she had to work in the daytime, she went to college at night. She went for 7 years and graduated with honors. My grandmother went on to graduate school in 1979 and was awarded a Ph.D. in 1991. This is how my grandmother came to the U.S.

My Immigration Story
As told to Tehreem by Saeed Rehman
 
 My dad immigrated to New York City alone from Pakistan in 1988.   He tried to show that immigrating here was a piece of cake but he really knew it wasn't, and realized he was also nervous.  He arrived by airplane on a flight that took about 24 hours.  My dad came here because he wanted more opportunities, better living standards, equal rights, and most of all his freedom.  He wanted freedom of speech, thought, and worship.  His goal in America was to be a good business person, and have a good reputation.  My dad is still trying to achieve his goals.  He got everything he expected from America.  He always thought that Americans lived in peace and harmony.  Once he arrived in this country, he still didn't change his mind!

My Immigration Story
I'm Bing Li. I'm going to tell you about when I first immigrated here. I came here from China. In China, I worked as a telephone operator. But my family was poor. So I immigrated to the U.S. seeking a better life.I got here by airplane in 1986.
 I lived in Jackson Heights, New York with my family. I missed my friends, but I happy to be in a new country. My goal was to live and raise a family here. I didn't know much English and sometimes I was mocked. My aunt gave me money when I first arrived in the U.S. and I got a job sewing clothes.
In 1992, I became a U.S. citizen. I was so proud of myself. In 1994, I went back to China to visit my mother-in-law. Three weeks later, I came back here.I now live in Queens, New York. I sometimes visit my mother who lives in Elmhurst, New York. I keep in touch with my friends by calling them over the telephone. I still don't speak English very well, but I have fulfilled my goal.

Grade 3 Unit 2 Lesson 1                                                     Homework.
 
Directions:
1. Read the poem “You Have to Live in Somebody Else's Country to Understandâ€
by Noy Chou
2. Bring this sheet to our next class. It will be the starting point for our discussion.
What is it like to be an outsider?
What is it like to sit in the class where everyone has blond hair and you have black hair?
What is it like when the teacher says, "Whoever wasn't born here raise your hand."
And you are the only one.
Then, when you raise your hand, everybody looks at you and makes fun of you.
You have to live in somebody else's country to understand.
What is it like when the teacher treats you like you've been here all your life?
What is it like when the teacher speaks too fast and you are the only one who can't understand what he or she is saving, and you try to tell him or her to slow down.
Then when you do, everybody says, "If you don't understand, go to a lower class or get lost."
You have to live in somebody else's country to understand.
What is it like when you are an opposite?
When you wear the clothes of your country and they think you are crazy to wear these clothes and you think they are pretty.
You have to live in somebody else's country to understand.
What is it like when you are always a loser.
What is it like when somebody bothers you when you do nothing to them?
You tell them to stop but they tell you that they didn't do anything to you.
Then, when they keep doing it until you can't stand it any longer, you go up to the teacher and tell him or her to tell them to stop bothering you.
They say that they didn't do anything to bother you.
Then the teacher asks the person sitting next to you.
He says, "Yes, she didn't do anything to her" and you have no witness to turn to.
So the teacher thinks you are a liar.
You have to live in somebody else's country to understand.
What is it like when you try to talk and you don't pronounce the words right?
They don't understand you.
They laugh at you but you don't know that they are laughing at you, and you start to laugh with them.
They say, "Are you crazy, laughing at yourself? Go get lost, girl."
You have to live in somebody else's country without a language to understand.
What is it like when you walk in the street and everybody turns around to look at you and you don't know that they are looking at you.
Then, when you find out, you want to hide your face but you don't know where to hide because they are everywhere.
You have to live in somebody else's country to feel it.
