Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry eNotes Response Journal
Excerpt From this Document
- Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry is set during the Depression, a time when poverty and unemployment left many Americans suffering. How do the details of the setting, dialogue, and descriptions show Cassie and her family struggling with poverty?
- How does Mama Logan’s reaction to the “new” textbooks differ from Miss Crocker’s? In your own words, explain why Miss Crocker objects to Mama’s decision to hide the offensive information in the front of the books. Then explain why Mama does it anyway. Do you think Mama is right to protect her children and her students from this evidence of racism? Why or why not?
- What aspects of Cassie’s life seem like a normal part of any childhood? What adult problems does she have to face? Would you say that she seems more like a child or more like an adult at the beginning of the story?
About this Document
An eNotes Response Journal is designed to encourage your students to read and write more effectively and with more pleasure. Each Response Journal includes a rich variety of writing prompts: some will take students directly into the text, while others will give students an opportunity to express their thoughts and feelings and to reflect on their own experiences.
A second purpose of the eNotes Response Journal is to facilitate instruction in ways that work for you in the classroom. The organization of the Response Journal makes it easy to use, and the content and construction of the writing prompts are designed to develop students’ knowledge and academic skills.
