Where's the weed?
In the shadow of the recent election and the sadness that has swept through California because marijuana hasn't been legalized I want to share a story that one of my students recently wrote. This story would be taken completely differently with a western point of view than from a Korean child's eye.
When Oliver asks his friend Nate the Great to find his lost weed, Nate can't say no. This isn't just any weed. It's a super weed that Oliver bought from Rosamond's ADOPT-A-WEED sale. First Nate must figure out where to look for the weed. With his trusty dog, Sludge he searches for clues in the woods and the Park and even the library! But is the biggest clue right under Nate's nose?
