After exploring the visual subtext about Maya, ask your students what happened to her at the end of the story. Where did she go? Why? Why do they infer this? What clues in the text suggest this? What experiences have they had in their own lives that inform their inference?
    Writing About Regret. Have students write about a time when they regret what they did. What happened? Do they understand why they acted the way they did? How did they know they did something wrong? What were the clues? Were they just “going along with the crowd” or did they purposefully try to hurt someone? Did it change how they acted in the future? Students might want also want to interview a grown-up in their lives, pose the same questions, and share what they have learned. Did the lessons learned in childhood “stick?”
