In this lesson, students read pages 89–93 of “Rules of the Game” from Amy Tan’s The Joy Luck Club, in which Waverly describes her neighborhood in San Francisco’s Chinatown and the events that lead to her receiving the chess board that begins her chess career. Students participate in a collaborative discussion to explore how Tan develops a central idea through Waverly’s descriptions of her neighborhood and her interactions with the characters in it.
