Map the most important events and turning points from The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan. After a group discussion from the previous lesson's homework assignment, kids create a timeline to chart the important events from the novel with passages that represent each event. They then write about the structure of the novel, including multiple narrators and integrated stories, and decide if the format is effective. They finish reading the novel for homework and think about the forces that motivate each character.
