12: VIEW OF CULTURAL/ETHNIC GROUP What did you learn from the novel about this cultural or ethnic group during this time period? # 1 I learned that not everyone is rich or poop, there are different wealths and different ways people live. Also I learned that not everyone lives the same way other people do. Jenna I Learned that everyone is defiantly not wealthy and that everyone is not as kind as they should be to others, they are not all treated equally especially throughout the end of the book. Brielle

13: I thought that everyone in India were not wealthy at all, and that everyone was treated fairly. But after reading this book I realized I was wrong. There are some people who can afford homes and others who can't. Also, I realized that no one is treated fairly. Everyone has their differences. Sarah B I learned that kids are told to go find work to help support their family's at early ages. Then they can get deceived or tricked into go into these "slave" factory places. Families who are extremely poor may need their kids to help on the farm, or in the big city help by getting a job. I thought that it would be the same as here and that kids would go to school, but I learned that that isn't always true. Kate I learned that not everybody was poor, and only a minimum amount of people had money. Also not everyone was treated fairly because of their race, looks, and amount of money. I also learned that people sometimes treated another nice. Brianna

14: How did your view of this cultural or ethnic group change as a result of reading this novel? ( I used to think... Now after.... I believe... because ... ) I used to think that everyone was poor and did not live very well. Now after I have read the book I believe that not everyone is poor they just all have different wealths. Jenna My view changed because i learned that they do a lot of the same things as we do and they act the same as we do. The only difference is that they eat different things than we do. Brielle

15: I learned that even though everyone is the same race some people are still not treated fairly. Also it is more about money in this culture not what you look like. Sarah B I thought that they lived like us, and that there were rich people and poor people. I found out that even the rich people don't have much items or stuff. Also, I found out that a lot of people lived on the streets in the city and that a lot of people had to flee to the city to escape debt. -Kate I used to think that people in India were poor and everyone was not wealthy. I was wrong. Some people in India are wealthy, also everyone started to be treated fairly even if they were different race. Brianna
