Essay Topics

Write an essay for ONE of the following topics:

Essay Topic 1

Chapter eleven is perhaps the most important chapter in the book. Its central event involves the three girls disobeying their mothers' orders not to leave the block. This act is literally and figuratively evidence of maturation. The maturation culminates in a personal transformation Neeka and the narrator feel when they are on the stage of the amphitheater. They announce "We're here!" as if proclaiming their entrance into adulthood. Examining the symbolism of the setting, the girls have finally gone from mere onlookers in life to the doers, the actors, on stage.

1. Discuss, in depth, the symbolism in the scene from the amphitheater. Use examples from After Tupac and D Foster to illustrate and support your answer.

2. Why do you think the narrator and Neeka disobeying their mothers might be evidence of maturation? Students may consider the act of baby birds flying from the nest. Use examples from After Tupac and D Foster to illustrate and support your answer.

3. Why do you think the narrator said she felt "whole" for the first time when the girls were at the amphitheater? Use examples from After Tupac and D Foster to illustrate and support your answer.
