Writing Prompt for 7th Grade Students:
You have just read how Farah thinks back to an experience she has on a carnival ride when she was 17 years old, and it triggers a flashback to her painful past. Explain why Farah says she "dropped through a trapdoor into some other reality" when she was on the Gondola ride at the carnival in Chicago. Explore the specific triggers and sensations that caused her to have this vivid flashback to a traumatic event in her past and how it made her feel like she had momentarily left the present and returned to a moment ten years ago. Discuss the emotional impact of this experience on Farah and how it relates to her life as a refugee and amputee in her new home in America. Use text evidence to support your answer.
Over the course of reading The Skin I'm In, we observe Maleeka's remarkable transformation, marked by her growing self-confidence. She achieves this by prioritizing her writing skills and shifting her focus away from her appearance. How is this shift from being a victim to asserting herself, made apparent in Chapter 31? Use text evidence to support your answer.
In the last Chapter, we read how Char manipulates Maleeka into keeping quiet about who helped her vandalize the classroom by first being overly friendly with Maleeka, then threatening her with blackmail. Not everyone, though, believes Maleeka vandalizes the classroom by herself. Explain why Miss Saunders goes to Maleeka's home. Use text evidence to support your answer.
Today you read how marriages are traditionally arranged in Afghan culture. Write about how Farah's grandfather rebels against his parents' wishes in finding his bride. Use text evidence to support your answer.
