Model of ConnectingName : Ilma Date: March 26, 2014Topic : Crimea votes on whether to secede from UkraineText to Self Text to World Text to Text This conflict remind me of TimorLeste that was separated withIndonesia on 2000. This is like was going onIndonesia, some provinces likeAceh, Djokjakarta, and Papuaever asked for Referendum toCentral Government. I remember when Timor Lestebecame a new nation , there weremany people became homelessand life uncertainly. Many politicians assumed thatseparation was caused by thedifferent of belief (India Pakistan), Race (Serbia Montenegro), Ideology (SouthKorea North Korea), andinterest (Cina Hongkong Tibet). There is connection betweenseparation movement (individualor group) and groups interestbecause they want to takeovernatural sources (GAM, OPM,RMS). Both UN and US often becomejudge and they monitor theprocess of referendum (votes). I ever seen in television andmass media, the foreignjournalists came to conflict areaand reported the process ofreferendum subjectively (theyusually support the building of anew nation). -Seputar Indonesia- I remember when a certainregion declared to be a freenation, the opposite figure willappear to public and invite peopleto support the movement. (e.g.Xanana Gusmao Timor Leste,Dalai Lama Tibet, and Mu AliJinah Pakistan).Republika- 11. Response Options forSharing Connections Verbal Reponses The reader would discuss the connections they made with atext aloud with others in a group. Written Responses The reader would write the connections they could makewith a text down on a sheet of paper or in a responsejournal. 12. To every text, a reader brings his/herpersonality, present mood, and memories,making each persons experience of textalmost as unique as a fingerprint.(Laura Robb)
