For homework, please read chapters 10-13 of Summer of the Swans (pages 49-76).
Then, please write an essay discussing this question (It should be 4-12 sentences long):
Why do you think self-acceptance and self-understanding are important? How do these two aspects affect Sara, Wanda, and Charlie throughout the story?
Last, please find 2-3 words or phrases in these chapters that you don't know. Find the definition and write it down. Bring these definitions to class to share with your classmates.
Have fun, and let me know if you have any questions!
