In "Windows and Mirrors," a Tapestry of Faith program
Tell the children this is an opportunity to write the story they just heard from Khadija's point of view. They will work in groups of three and, when they are done, they will have an opportunity to share their work with the larger group. Suggest that they create a conversation between Khadija and Mohamed to read aloud as a script.
Say something like:
Ask yourselves what was difficult about standing beside Mohamed. What do you think Khadija's family said to her? Where do you think she got her strength? What might a conversation between Khadija and Mohamed have been? Between Khadija and another family member or a friend? Feel free to imagine this. Consider these and other ideas as you write together.
Arrange children in groups of three to write. Allow about five minutes. Then regather the groups and invite them to present their stories or scripts.
