How does background and experience influence one's point of view? Dwight Okita's famous poem about the Japanese internment is the text used to explore this essential question. Class members study primary documents to gain the necessary historical background and read the poem. As a culminating activity, class members rewrite Okita's poem from the point of view of Denise, the non-Japanese girl.The detailed plan includes a link to the poem, review and comprehension questions, extensions and references.
