The history of China, as Amy Tan was affected by it, is the backdrop for the novel. One excellent before-or-during activity is to have students research the novel's historical context and report out individually, at different times in the story, on the events that are happening in Chinese history at the same time Tan's narrative takes place. Discuss how her country's history and her family's adventures in America provide a point-counterpoint; further assignments in writing and discussion might evaluate her use of history as a symbolic representative for her family's interactions.
Tan's novel replicates four family interactions, all of them demonstrating parental disapproval of both American culture and their children's responses to it. In-class writing activities can reflect these jigsaw clashes with post-reading, on-demand writings asking how a student's family affects his life, and asking him to detail how his family's dreams for him conflict with his own dreams. This is an especially fruitful critical thinking activity for students nearing graduation, a time when their own dreams are uppermost in their priorities.
