2007/10/4-Esperanza Rising

  • what happened  ->    Esperanza was working very hard by cutting the eye of potatoes. She was thinking a lot of things while she was working. When she got back home, she went to the bathroom and washed her hands cleanly. When she saw her hands, she thought they were not her hands because they looked old and cut and sarred. Hortensia came to Esperanza with the avocado oil to cure her hands. When Hortensia was taking care of Esperanza’s hands, Esperanza thought about her past. Before, her mom took care of my hands but the situation has totally changed. She was surprised at the simple things she missed about her mom.
  •    Few days later, the spring has come. Miguel came to Esperanza and asked her to go to the market together. Esperanza agreed with it. She changed a lot these days. She was such as rude girl, but now, she is such so kind and worked very hard since her mom was in the hospitol. Miguel and Esperanza went to the Japanese market which was far away from their house. Esperanza was so curious so asked Miguel why we are going to the Japanese market which is far away? And Miguel answered that the American people think Mexicans are uneducated and poor so they do not want to be with Mexicans. Esperanza was very sad to hear that. She could has used her money in the store th buy something but she didn’t. She saved her money for her mother, to send the money so that her mom can feel better.

  • what will happen next?  ->I think Abuelita will be able to come and her mom will be cured with the happiness. And everybody will become happy. Also Esperanza will change the world’s thinking that not all of the Mexicans are uneducated and poor.
  • how did you feel about the parts you have just read? ->I felt very sorry for Esperanza for all of the unfortunate happenings and I hope everything will be better as soon as possible. Also I hope the doctors will take care of her mom a lot. If I was her, I could not do anything at that point, but she did a lot of things which were good so I am proud of her.
  • if there is anything to change, how would you change it?  -> I would make daddy to come back to Esparenza’s family as a surprise. So that her mom will be cured.
  • might want to ask the writer or the characters in the story?  ->I want to ask Esperanza how did she feel when she heard that Americans think that Mexicans are poor and uneducated?

      Try making your summary so that you’re not replying questions. So it seems more natural and the reader can move with the flow. Instead of “what will happen next? ->” you can say I think _____ will happen next.
