“Who are you?” Milkweed, the story of a young orphan living in Poland during World War II, launches a study of prejudice and identity. Prior to reading Jerry Spinelli’s tale, class groups agree or disagree with a series of statements based on issues raised by the novel, and discuss the rationale for their choices. After concluding the story, individuals reflect on their initial responses. Directions and a template for the activity are included.
