Journal #3: The Gift
After we watch this video together as a class, address the prompt below for this journal entry.
Prompt: Jeanette Walls shares both in this clip and in The Glass Castle how vivid and special her memory is of her father giving them a star for Christmas. Think back on your own experiences. What is the most meaningful gift you’ve ever given or received that cost nothing. How did it feel to give/receive this gift? It may not be a “gift” in the traditional sense of the word, as in something material or tangible. Describe the gift and the moment that you gave or received it. What do you remember about that time? Include sensory details, active voice, and a photo that represents this memory in your 300 word response.
