- This lesson focuses on the chapter “Chinatown” from Laurence Yep’s memoir, The Lost Garden. Students will consider the factors that contributed to Yep’s struggle to find a sense of belonging with his peers and in his community. Students will determine in what ways the essential question (In what ways does our need to feel a sense of belonging conflict with our individuality?) is relevant to Laurence Yep’s experience as he describes it in “Chinatown”.
