The Breadwinner • Chapter Nine & Ten

Today we listened to chapter nine and ten of The Breadwinner.


CHAPTER NINE ANSWERS:

Parvana’s life is different from Shauzia’s life because her father is in jail but Shauzia’s father passed away because he had a bad heart. The first plan Mrs. Weera and mother have is to publish a magazine story around to other women. The second plan Mrs. Weera has is to start a school for a couple of girls to attend to for at least an hour a day. Both of these plans are dangerous because the Taliban doesn’t like books and they don’t think women and girls should have an education.


CHAPTER TEN QUESTIONS:

 The girls new jobs are bone diggers. If I was in a situation like them, I might be able to do this, but, I most likely wouldn’t be able to dig up bones for a living. Land mines are something people put in a field and explode when people step on them. I personally don’t think that vision will not be true. I think this because not everyone stays friends forever.


 

In the next chapter I think Parvana’s mother will find out about the bone digging job.
