You are part of a group of contractors who have just completed reading House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros, you feel sympathy for her and you want to help her. You must design, build, and furnish a house suitable for Esperanza.
Although she is desperate to leave Mango Street, keep in mind what the three sisters tell her, “When you leave you must remember to come back for the others. A circle, understand? You will always be Esperanza. You will always be Mango Street. You can’t erase what you know. You can’t forget who you are” (103).
You will browse the web for information on types of homes and home furnishings. You will create a presentation in PowerPoint that reveals what your house will include. You must have at least 12 slides. Each slide should be dedicated to a room in the house and include the following:
-A photo of the room and what is included
-Why this room is important in relation to Esperanza
-An explanation of the room in general that tells what room it is and what is included.
I am grading the CONNECTION TO THE NOVEL. If you are not using the book or a website to gather information, your presentation will not be graded. Designing a "pretty house" is not the same as demonstrating a relationship to the novel. Please see me for help or to use the book in class.
