Strength Through Story-telling   (poetry, spoken word, cartooning)

Question Man is really Answer Man, and Shimrat’s story is about finding answers and wellbeing within the self.  In a poem, spoken word or single-frame cartoon, and using the following questions as guides, have students depict what Question Man’s answer was for Shimrat.

  • How would you describe the relationship between Irit Shimrat and Question Man?  What was the dynamic between the two of them?

  • Shimrat needs to write to find her lost self, but what other strategies might help people move past “lostness” to reclaim self?

  • How can you as a practitioner work with people to assist them to locate knowledges and strategies within themselves?
