Write a quick summary of the memoir you are reading on your own. Include your thoughts about the theme and any reactions you have to the events. (If you are not reading a memoir of your own yet please write about the steps you are taking to get one.)
This morning you are going to read a fourth memoir with your #4 partner. This text is called "Us and Them" by David Sedaris. This text has questions in it. Read silently until you get to the questions. Then discuss the questions with your partner and answer them on the Word document.
In your Writer's Notebook create an It Says, I Say, And So chart for this memoir. Include at least two quotes that you feel relate to the theme.
