We have spent the past week working on justifying our thinking and answers when responding to text. Today, I would like you to respond to the text Just a Dream, by Chris Van Allsburg. Please make sure that you have shown how your own ideas and the evidence prove your thinking. (This shows that…… because…..)
At the beginning of Just a Dream, Walter thinks the tree Rose received as a birthday present is a dumb gift. Why does Walter feel that his tree is his best birthday present of all at the end of the book? Provide evidence from the text and your own ideas to justify your answer.
