Essential Question: What can an individual do to create a safe, welcoming place for all?
Suggested Writing Product: Imagine that the texts’ authors are having a conversation. Think about the messages and ideas they would and would not want to communicate to each other. Based on these ideas, write a dialogue that brings the authors into conversation.
Additional Task Demand: Make the conversation as realistic and meaningful as you can by including at least one quote from each text to show that you understand the author’s point of view.
