Today, after we read, we will practice some more creative writing. You will each write a vignette about the meaning of your name. Refer back to the vignette that starts on page 10, titled "My Name." Pay close attention to the details Esperanza addressed about her name and model your vignette after this one. Some of the questions you could possibly address in your vignette are:
What does your name mean?
Are you named after someone? What was he/she like?
How do you feel about your name?
Is there something you would rather be named?
You can find the meaning of your name at any of the following websites:
You can do this about your first or last name. If you really don't want to talk about how you got your name and what it means, feel free to do this with a nickname or a screen name you go by!
