They both came from a poor background and yet, she managed to rise above the difficulties. She is trying very hard to provide for her family and she shows responsibility and maturity.

60-80 Part III Bridging Text and Context 11. THE TREASURE OF LEMON BROWN / Walter Dean Myers The value of something is in its importance, not in its cost. adapted from Aesop, Aesops Fables. Make a connection between the above quote and the story. Give information from the story to support your answer.

The value of something is in its importance, not in its cost. The above quote refers to the fact that a treasure is not a treasure because it costs a lot of money, it is a treasure because it has an emotional meaning to the person who owns it. This is very similar to the message that Lemon Brown is trying to teach Greg in the story. Lemon keeps a valuable treasure: yellowed newspaper clippings and a

battered harmonica. These items look like garbage when Greg first looks at them, since they seem very inexpensive. However, to Lemon, these items are the most valuable things he has, because they represent his past as a blues singer and his last memory from his son, Jesse. Part III Bridging Text and Context 12. THE ROAD NOT TAKEN / Robert Frost

I am what I am today because of the choices I made yesterday. Steven R. Covey. Make a connection between the above quote and the poem. Give information from the poem to support your answer. I am what I am today because of the choices I made yesterday. The above quote talks about the fact that our decisions influence our future: the choices we make will determine the person we become.

This connects to the message of the poem "The Road Not Taken". In the poem, the speaker must make a choice and he stands for a long time before making his decision. He does this because he knows that whichever road he picks, there will be consequences later on in his life. In the end he sighs and says that his choice "has made all the difference". He is referring to that fact that his decision shaped the person he became, just like the quote says.
