Reflection: Analyzing Story Elements of Grandfather's Journey - Section 2: Introduction


Scholars listed some possible difficulties as learning a new language, leaving friends and family behind, meeting new friends, not knowing the customs and culture, different weather, finding a safe place to live, finding a new job, and possible pleasurable experiences as meeting new friends, learning new customs and culture, seeing new things, and learning a new language.  Several students noticed that some things that they listed as possible difficulties were things that someone else viewed as a possible pleasurable experience.  It brought us to a conversation about varying points of view and how each of us brings our our unique perspectives based on our own personal knowledge and experiences.
