GT Seminar II: Dasani - Invisible Child

Now that we have finished reading the 5-part series about Dasani and her family, I'd like you to write about your honest reactions to the piece. Then, answer the following questions. (Questions via NYT Learning Network)

1. What questions does this piece raise for you?

2. You may be struck by how different Dasani’s life is from your own, but parts of her story share commonalities with any coming-of-age tale. In what ways do you recognize yourself or your own world in Dasani’s?

3. What would you like to say to Dasani if you could? Why?
