Dialogue 6R1.1.b

Read this passage. Answer the questions that follow it.

Shira was curious about her grandmother's childhood. Grandma had grown up so very long ago. Shira decided to have a conversation with her to learn more.

"Grandma, where and when were you born?"

"I was born just outside of Savannah, Georgia, in 1928," Grandma said. "Someday, I'd like to show you our old neighborhood."

"I'd love to see it," Shira said enthusiastically. Then she asked, "Please tell me about your family."

"Of course," Grandma replied. "I was the oldest of five children and the only girl in the family. My mother took care of all of us, and my father worked on the docks."

"Did you work when you finished school?" Shira asked.

"Yes, I worked at a paper mill. It employed many people from the area. In fact, I met your grandpa while I was working at the mill."

"Wow, I didn't know that," said Shira. "Did you or Grandpa have any relatives who lived in other places?"

"We both had relatives from New England. They loved to visit us."

Shira was thrilled to learn about Grandma's life, but it was getting late. They planned to talk some more the next day.
