Ask participants to write short (one or two page) stories about their names. (You may have to assign this prior to the class in which you want to use it.) Leave the assignment open to individual interpretation as much as possible, but if asked for more specific instructions, suggest some or all of the following possibilities for inclusion in their stories: Ecourage students to be creative. In the past, some have written poetry, included humor, listed adjectives that described them, and so on. Also be sure to let them know that they will be sharing their stories with the rest of the class.

In order to ensure that everybody has an opportunity to share her or his story, break into diverse small groups of five or six if necessary. Give participants the option either to read their stories or to share their stories from memory. Ask for volunteers to share their stories.

Points to remember:

According to my mother, "Paul" means "small". When I say that to other folks, they tell me it doesn't mean "small," though no one seems to know what it means.

My parents wanted to name me "Cameron." "Paul" goes back three or four generations, I'm not sure which. My father and his father and his father are all named "Paul." But my mother liked "Cameron," so "Cameron" it was. But then I was born...five weeks prematurely. I was a tiny baby. I was the itsy-bitsiest baby in the new baby room at the hospital. According to my mother, that was a sign. Remember, "Paul" means "small".

So I am Paul Cameron Gorski. My father is Paul Peter Gorski. The exception, of course, is when someone calls my parents' home for one of us. At that point we become Big Paul and Little Paul, the father Paul and the son Paul, or the older one and the younger one (my Dad doesn't appreciate that one too much). Sometimes people call and I'm too exhausted to explain to them the whole idea that there are two Pauls living in one house, so I just pretend to be Paul Peter, and give my Dad the message later. He doesn't seem to mind that, especially when the caller is trying to sell us something. Still, I hope he doesn't do the same thing.

Paul lends itself well to rhyming nicknames. Bill, a good friend of mine, calls me "Tall Paul". He does so sarcastically, usually after blocking one of my shots in a basketball game. I often have to remind him that the whole irony of that nickname is that, according to my mother, "Paul" means "small," which is very nearly the opposite of "tall." In high school, I was often called "Paul Mall" in reference to a brand of cigarettes, because, as they said, my ball handling skills were smokin'. And again, the irony is that generally the small players have better ball handling skills.

The truth of the matter is that I really don't know whether or not "Paul" means "small". Perhaps it means "Jedi warrior" or "sunflower" or "career student". No matter. I've never looked it up, and never will. According to my Mom, "Paul" means "small." That sounds good to me.

What is Your Name Story?

name story assignment

Engaging with students’ names at the beginning of the year helps them critically think about language and naming, as well as consider concepts around naming related to meaning, culture, power, and identity. This lesson further helps English teachers address values around diversity, equity, and inclusion.

  • Ask students to watch this 2011 advertisement for Coke . In pairs discuss: What might be some reasons why this Coke campaign was so successful?
  • Then, watch this 2013 adaptation of the campaign from China . Ask students: How is this campaign different?  What might be some reasons why Coke may have changed their approach for a Chinese audience?
  • Write your first/given name on the piece of paper or slide given to you. This can be your full name or your nick name.
  • Who named you?  Why were you given this name?
  • What does your name mean?  Where does it come from? Does this meaning and context represent your identity?  Why/why not?
  • What is your experience with your name? 
  • Do you like/dislike your name?
  • Select or create icons and images that are related to your name story. 
  • Share your name story in small groups.
  • Have students read this article from The Atlantic entitled, “ Who Wins in the Name Game ”?
  • Why is the language of names important?
  • What assumptions do we make about people based on their name?
  • What assumptions might people make about you based on your name?
  • What relationships can you see between power and names?
  • In pairs, students discuss the question: Should we be made to use our “real” names online and in other contexts?
  • Then, have students read this article: “ Why Facebook and Google’s Concept of ‘Real Names’ Is Revolutionary ”
  • Choose a sentence from the article that supports this assertion.
  • To what extent do you agree with the article’s argument?
  • To what extent do you disagree with the article’s argument?
  • What issues exist because people are allowed to use pseudonyms online that are not addressed in this article?
  • Where do you stand on this issue?
  • In their portfolios, students write a reflection responding to the following question: What new understandings and ideas did you encounter today through our discussion of names?

Note: This lesson could easily be cut down to do only one or two of these activities. As planned, this lesson would take approximately 80 minutes.

Naming in a Digital World: Creating a Safe Persona on the Internet

Naming in a Digital World: Creating a Safe Persona on the Internet

  • Resources & Preparation
  • Instructional Plan
  • Related Resources

Naming takes on new meanings in digital settings—as students build personas through e-mail addresses, screen names, and online profiles, they can be unaware of the ways that others may read the information they share. Students begin this lesson by researching and discussing their own names. They investigate the role that situation and audience play in how names, such as nicknames or full names, are used. Next, they determine which of their names would be appropriate in a variety of different situations and then apply that idea to email, deciding which email addresses would be appropriate for each situation. Students use an online game to see what they can tell about another person from looking at their email address and then review online safety information. Finally, students choose a specific name that they would (or do) use to represent themselves online and create a profile for this online persona.

Featured Resources

What’s in a Name? Interactive: Students can use this online tool to find resources about naming conventions. Keeping Kids Safer on the Internet: Tips for Parents and Guardians :  This resource from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children explores the benefits and risks of a variety online tools,  including email, texting, social networking, and gaming, and offers tips for keeping kids safe as they use them. Online Profile Tips : Students can use these tips for creating safe online profiles for their class assignment as well as in real contexts.

State Standards

This lesson has been aligned to standards in the following states. If a state does not appear in the drop-down, standard alignments are not currently available for that state.

NCTE/IRA National Standards for the English Language Arts

  • 1. Students read a wide range of print and nonprint texts to build an understanding of texts, of themselves, and of the cultures of the United States and the world; to acquire new information; to respond to the needs and demands of society and the workplace; and for personal fulfillment. Among these texts are fiction and nonfiction, classic and contemporary works.
  • 3. Students apply a wide range of strategies to comprehend, interpret, evaluate, and appreciate texts. They draw on their prior experience, their interactions with other readers and writers, their knowledge of word meaning and of other texts, their word identification strategies, and their understanding of textual features (e.g., sound-letter correspondence, sentence structure, context, graphics).
  • 4. Students adjust their use of spoken, written, and visual language (e.g., conventions, style, vocabulary) to communicate effectively with a variety of audiences and for different purposes.
  • 5. Students employ a wide range of strategies as they write and use different writing process elements appropriately to communicate with different audiences for a variety of purposes.
  • 7. Students conduct research on issues and interests by generating ideas and questions, and by posing problems. They gather, evaluate, and synthesize data from a variety of sources (e.g., print and nonprint texts, artifacts, people) to communicate their discoveries in ways that suit their purpose and audience.
  • 8. Students use a variety of technological and information resources (e.g., libraries, databases, computer networks, video) to gather and synthesize information and to create and communicate knowledge.
  • 9. Students develop an understanding of and respect for diversity in language use, patterns, and dialects across cultures, ethnic groups, geographic regions, and social roles.
  • 11. Students participate as knowledgeable, reflective, creative, and critical members of a variety of literacy communities.
  • 12. Students use spoken, written, and visual language to accomplish their own purposes (e.g., for learning, enjoyment, persuasion, and the exchange of information).

Materials and Technology

  • Baby Name Books
  • Specialized Baby Name Books
  • Name Story Assignment
  • Naming T-Chart
  • Online Persona Options
  • Online Name Form
  • Online Profile Tips
  • Online Persona Evaluation Form

or your school system’s Acceptable Use Policy

Preparation

  • Confirm that students have signed Acceptable Use Policy statements on file, or pass out copies of the Model Acceptable Use Policy or your school system’s Acceptable Use Policy and require that the information is turned in before students create online e-mail addresses, profiles, or other Internet resources.
  • Make copies or transparencies of the Name Story Assignment , Naming T-Chart , Online Name Form , Online Profile Tips , and Online Persona Evaluation Form .
  • Schedule this lesson so that students will have time to interview or gather details about the names they’re exploring. If you complete the first session on the last day of a week, for instance, students will have the weekend to interview someone for the activity.
  • Gather books on naming from your library, being sure to obtain books that cover a range of cultural names. Try to find books that provide some details on name origins, frequency of use, historical figures with similar names, and so forth. In addition to the books included on the general list , there are numerous books that explore specific naming traditions .
Students may not have access to family members who can provide background on where their names came from. Additionally, if a student’s name points to a source of contention within that student’s family or elsewhere, provide alternative options for this activity. Ideally, simply explain during the first session that students can research someone else in their family or community, and provide examples of other possible choices (e.g., the school principal’s name, the town mayor’s name). Students might also research the names of heroes, celebrities, or historical figures. Work the alternatives into the activity naturally so that students with special situations do not feel singled out.
  • Decide on the way to structure the final activity where students create online personas by choosing a name and creating a profile. See the Online Persona Options handout for additional information.
  • Test the What’s in a Name interactive, Tracking Teresa , and the Profile Publisher on your computers to familiarize yourself with the tools and ensure that you have the Flash plug-in installed. You can download the plug-in from the technical support page.

Student Objectives

Students will

  • explore naming conventions in digital and non-digital settings.
  • analyze the underlying connotations of names.
  • analyze the ways that name-giving practices vary from one culture to another.
  • synthesize their investigation by choosing and explaining specific names to represent themselves online.

Session One

  • Explain that during this unit students will focus on names that they use with a variety of audiences—in both digital and non-digital settings.
  • How did you come to be named?
  • Who made the decision about your official names?
  • What nicknames do you have?
  • What names do you like or dislike and why?
  • If you could pick out your own names, what would you select?
  • After students have had enough time to gather their thoughts, gather the class and share some details about your own name story, explaining how you came to be named, how you chose a nickname, or another story about your name.
  • Demonstrate how to use the What’s in a Name? interactive to research information about your name (or if you prefer choose the name of a student or the name of a literary character). Students can read the excerpt from Baby Names for Dummies , which is linked in the interactive independently, or you can read the piece aloud as a group.
  • Before students begin their research, explain that they will share their findings with others in the class. Emphasize that students should be careful to gather information that they are willing to (and won’t be embarrassed to) to share with others.
  • Allow students time to use the interactive to research the names.
  • Once students have had time to research names, or when about five minutes remain in the class, invite students to share any interesting details that they found in their research.
  • Pass out copies of the Name Story Assignment , and ask students to complete the activity for homework. Be sure to allow enough time between this session and the next for students to gather the information and complete the writing. Emphasize that students are only gathering ideas, and explain that students will share their research during the next session.

Session Two

  • Arrange students in small groups, and ask them to share the details that they found out about their own or someone else’s name.
  • Ask each group to choose one story to share with the whole class.
  • Gather students, and ask each group to share the story that they have chosen.
  • What do names tell us about people?
  • How are names part of a person’s history?
  • How were the names that weren’t chosen part of the stories?
  • How do name-giving practices vary from one culture to another?
  • With basic information about naming established, turn students’ attention to how the names that we use can depend upon the situations we’re in and the people we are with.
  • Display an overhead of the Naming Chart , or draw a similar chart on the board or a piece of chart paper.
  • Fill out the chart, using your own names or using a character from a recent reading whom students are familiar with, to demonstrate the activity. Emphasize the role that the situation and audience play in how names are used.
  • Brainstorm a list of the different kinds of names and nicknames people can have (e.g., sports nicknames, family nicknames, full names, first name only).
  • Pass out copies of the Naming Chart or ask students to draw a chart in their journals.
  • Ask students to complete the chart for themselves or for the person whom they explored in the Name Story Assignment . Ask students to use the brainstormed list of kinds of names to help them identify the different names that people have and use. Students can use the remaining time during the session or complete the activity for homework.
  • Explain that they will share their charts with others in the class during the next session. Emphasize that students should be careful to gather information that they are willing to (and won’t be embarrassed to) share with others.

Session Three

  • Arrange students in small groups, and ask them to share the different names and situations that they recorded on their Naming Charts .
  • Review the rhetorical terms purpose and audience , using information from your textbook or this handout from the University of Houston, Victoria .
  • Ask students to draw conclusions about the connections between the information on their Naming Charts and the ideas of purpose and audience. Ask students how the situations that they are in and the people they are with determine the name(s) that they use.
  • writing a letter to a college or university to ask about admissions
  • e-mailing a classmate to ask about a definition you forgot to write down in class
  • writing to a friend in another state to catch up on his or her life
  • writing a research paper for a social studies class
  • writing a thank you note to a grandparent or another adult for a gift
  • writing an acceptance letter for a scholarship
  • e-mailing a teacher to find out about the assignment you missed when you were absent
  • writing a letter to the editor of the local newspaper
  • posting a comment on a friend’s online journal (or blog)
  • As students discuss the names that are appropriate for each situation, encourage them to discuss how they know which name to choose and how the purpose of their writing might be affected if they made another choice (e.g., what if you chose a family nickname to sign a message to your teacher?).
  • As the discussion evolves, shift to a discussion of the names people use in online spaces. This issue can flow naturally from the discussion of e-mail messages included in the list above.
  • A school address: [email protected]
  • A home address: [email protected]
  • A second home (and more personal) address: [email protected]
  • Return to the scenarios students analyzed, and ask students to imagine that the character from the story is writing e-mail messages for each of the situations.
  • Ask students to indicate which e-mail address Scout (or the character you’ve chosen) should use in each situation and audience. Ask students to explain their decisions. Encourage them to use the rhetorical terms of audience and purpose as part of their explanations.
  • For homework, ask students to reflect in their journals on the connections between the names that people use and the audiences and purposes in which they use them. In particular, ask them to consider how audience and purpose influences the use of names in digital settings. If desired, provide students the following prompt for their reflection: How does audience and purpose influence what you write or say about yourself and who you are?
  • If desired, pass out copies of the Teen Safety on the Information Highway , from the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (or ask students to read the document online). Ask students to identify information in the brochure that is important to consider when choosing information to share through an online persona (e.g., what kinds of details should not be included an e-mail address?). Ask students to complete their reading before the next session.

Session Four

  • Ask students to share observations from their journal entries. You can open the discussion with the prompt from their homework: How does audience and purpose influence what you write or say about yourself and who you are?
  • As discussion develops, ask students how personal safety can influence the personal information that they share with others. If students have read the optional brochure, Teen Safety on the Information Highway , tie the conversation to observations from the reading.
  • Share the NetSmartz interactive, Tracking Teresa (or have students view the video at computer workstations).
  • The person’s name is probably J. L. Finch.
  • The person is probably at a school with "Maycomb" in its name.
  • The person is probably somewhere in the south.
  • The person is probably a girl/woman.
  • "Scout" might mean that the person is a Girl or Boy Scout or that the person is a wilderness scout.
  • "Boo" is a term of endearment in the south, so the word may refer to a family member or friend.
  • As students share details, encourage them to connect the information to the e-mail addresses—not to information that they may know from other sources (e.g., we know who Scout is, and that the nickname does not refer to either of the guesses above; however, someone looking at her e-mail address online would not be certain what the name refers to).
  • Once students demonstrate that they see how the names that people use online can reveal details about them, shift to the final activity for the unit.
  • Explain that students will choose and explain a specific name that they would (or do) use to represent themselves online and create a profile for this online persona. Connect to the class discussion by emphasizing that the name and profile should be appropriate and safe for a particular audience and situation.
  • Share the scenario that you have chosen for the class. See the Online Persona Options handout for suggestions.
  • If students will draft their personas online, demonstrate the Profile Publisher to the students. Otherwise, pass out the Online Persona Form . If desired, students can also use the Online Name Form to gather ideas before moving to the Profile Publisher .
  • If students are signing up for actual accounts during this process, also pass out any forms that may be required by your system.
  • If students are choosing online names that they will actually use, go over the requirements for the system that they will use (e.g., limitations on the length of the name, symbols that can be used).
  • If students are using an outside service, look for the details on names for the system. For instance, you might share the How to Choose a Safe Screen Name , Internet Safety: Safe Surfing Tips for Teens , or NetSmartz Teens .
  • If you’re using an imagined scenario, you might also share hints for an existing system (e.g., AOL) so that students choose realistic names.
  • Ask students to brainstorm characteristics that would make a name or personal information appropriate and safe for the particular scenario the class is working on. In addition to basic tips about safety and appropriateness, encourage students to share technical details, as appropriate for their situation (e.g., your e-mail address should use only letters and numbers).
  • As students share ideas, write them on the board, a transparency, or chart paper.
  • Once students have finished making suggestions, review the list as a class. Group like criteria together and eliminate any duplicates.
  • Does not reveal personal information (real name, family details, address, phone number, etc.)
  • Does not give age or year of birth
  • Does not include specific names of the school or other local places
  • Does not share geographical details (name of your city, neighborhood park, etc.)
  • Spend some time going over the tips included on the Online Profile Tips , emphasizing the safety tips and providing examples of information that is appropriate to share.
  • Ask students to use all the ideas they have gathered about names to choose a name and complete the Online Name Form and/or the Profile Publisher .
  • Explain that you will collect students’ work during the next class session. Ask students to turn in two copies—one with their school names clearly indicated (for grading purposes) and one that only indicates the online names that they have chosen (to be read by others in the class).
  • If desired, add a class session so that students can work on their profiles during class time.

Session Five

  • Collect the copies of students’ Online Name Forms or printouts from the Profile Publisher . Sort the copies so that you have two piles, one that indicates school names (for grading) and one that does not (to be used for peer review during this session).
  • Return to the rubric created during the previous session, and review the characteristics of appropriate and safe online names and profiles that the class has established.
  • Arrange students in small groups.
  • Pass out copies of the completed Online Name Forms or printouts from the Profile Publisher to students, using those that do NOT include the students’ real names and ensuring that groups do not have the profiles for any of their group members.
  • Have students read and review the names and profiles they have received, using the Online Persona Evaluation Form to guide their responses to each name. If students have created safe profiles and names, students will not know whose profiles they are reviewing.
  • Ask each group to choose one persona to share with the whole class. Ask students to be prepared to explain why they thought the persona was successful.
  • Once students have reviewed the personas in their groups, gather students, and ask each group to share the story that they have chosen.
  • Ask students to discuss what they’ve discovered from the personas as a class.
  • Collect the Online Name Forms or printouts from the Profile Publisher and the Online Persona Evaluation Forms , and return the papers to their authors. Use the copy that you have collected for grading to help you match up students with their forms. If desired, call the online names aloud and allow students to identify themselves for the class.
  • For homework, ask students to make any revisions to their profiles, based on the feedback on the Evaluation Form , the class rubric, and the discussion from the class session.
  • Ask students to turn in their Online Name Forms or printouts from the Profile Publisher , with their real names clearly indicated, and the Evaluation Form .

Use the ReadWriteThink lesson Avalanche, Aztek, or Bravada? A Connotation Mini-Lesson to explore naming and connotation in more detail.

Student Assessment / Reflections

Use the rubric that the class creates in Session Four as well as the questions on the Online Persona Evaluation Form to assess the online name and profile that students choose. Assessment should touch both on rhetorical appropriateness for the audience and situation and on demonstration of an understanding of Internet safety guidelines. If desired, ask students to reflect on the unit in their journals. You can ask students to respond to the prompt: What does the online name mean and why did you choose it? Alternately, you can ask students to summarize what they’ve learned about online safety or to talk about how people create personas in non-digital settings. Finally, you might ask students to compare characteristics of names in digital and non-digital settings, using the Venn Diagram student interactive. Encourage students to draw connections between the ways that people choose and use names based on their audience and situation, whether engaging in digital or non-digital communication.

  • Calendar Activities
  • Strategy Guides
  • Student Interactives

Students reflect on recent learning and the role digital tools and media have played in supporting or enhancing it.

Students use the Profile Publisher to draft online social networking profiles, yearbook profiles, and newspaper or magazine profiles for themselves, other real or fictional characters.

This interactive tool allows students to create Venn diagrams that contain two or three overlapping circles, enabling them to organize their information logically.

Inspiring Teachers to Engage All Learners

Story of my Name Writing

name story assignment

Today I’m sharing one of my favourite tasks for building community in the classroom.  Students are able to share an important aspect of themselves (the story of their name) with the class and with me, their teacher.  Through this task we are also working on important skills, like reading comprehension, writing, and reflection.

To begin, I asked my students to write any name they wish they had on a sticky note. They then placed it in a mason jar.

I read my class the story “The Name Jar” by Yansook Choi.

We stopped at several points in the story to predict, make connections, infer, and ask questions.  At one point, we paused in the story so that students could journal about the name they wrote down on the sticky note earlier:

– Did they choose their own name? Or another?

– Why?

– If you chose another name, where did you hear that name before?

At the end of Day 1, students were given homework.

name story assignment

(Stick around to the bottom of this post for a chance to get your own copy of this sheet.)

I make it very clear, that while names all have meanings, your family may not have chosen your name for that reason.  They might not know the meaning, and you can choose to look it up with your family if you wish.  I also focus a lot on nicknames and your own feelings about your name.  While I’ve never taught a student in foster care, or one who was adopted, I do think it’s important to mention that this could be a touchy task in those situations, so be sure to know your students first, and modify as needed.

Students use the homework task, and the journal write from the previous day, to write “The Story of their Name”.  Some possible options to include are:

– who you are named after

– the meaning of your name

– a name you’d rather have

– your feelings toward your name

– nicknames you may have

– the person (or people) who chose your name

– how your name was chosen

This piece of writing is then self, peer, and teacher edited, and a “good” copy is made.

I found this excellent step-by-step self-portrait from “Art Projects for Kids”.  I modified the task so that instead of drawing the left or right side of their face, they would draw the top half.

Students find that folding their page into quadrants as she suggests is very helpful.  Under the document camera I demonstrate each step, and students copy, adapting to their own facial features.  Each student gets a mirror to look in to help them personalize.

The final pieces are put on a bulletin board for display.  Students also coloured in a bubble letter version of their names to complete the display.  (I used the font KG Red Hands Outline for this.)

name story assignment

Once we’ve completed the task, the last job is to reflect on our work.  I pulled some elements from our Arts Education curriculum (very relevant regardless of where you teach) for students to self-assess on.  I’ve used the proficiency scale language our school has moved to for all reporting.

A few students found it helpful to complete their reflection while looking at the finished product on their bulletin board, but most didn’t need this.

PRACTICE

Activity 1: The story of my name

In this activity, the participants are invited to share the story of their own name, its history and its meaning. The students learn more about each other, they learn to value each other’s background and they reflect on the connection between name, identity and cultural background.

Teachers can ask their students to inquire information about their name from their parents and to answer the following questions (might also be done as a homework):

  • Who chose your name and why?
  • Does it have a meaning?
  • Was it always like this or has it changed?
  • Do people sometimes pronounce or write your name in a wrong way?
  • Do you like your name?
  • How would you like to be called?
  • How do your relatives and friends call you?
  • Is there a different way of writing/pronouncing your name in another language?
  • In which language version do you like your name most?
  • Is there a story connected to your name?

Then the class will come together in a circle in class and the teacher invites the students to share the stories of their names. For this activity a flipchart or a board with the questions should be prepared. Nobody should be forced to answer all questions.

If you have time left, you can invite every participant to write his/her name on a paper and next to each letter of the name something typical for him/her, starting with the corresponding letter. It could be a characteristic, hobby, a person etc. Then everyone presents his/her ideas to the rest of the group.

A similar exercise can be found at: The “Listen“ Project (2019): The LISTEN Manual. https://listen.bupnet.eu/wp-content/uploads/2019/02/LISTEN_IO3_Training_Manual_EN.pdf

My Special Name: Literacy Activities and Printables

All About Me Preschool Theme: My Special Name Literacy Activities and Printables

Here you will find some examples of literacy activities you can do to explore the topic ‘My Special Name’ with your children. I planned this topic based on the book ‘Chrysanthemum’ by Kevin Henkes.

Although, this section focuses mainly on the literacy aspect of this topic, some of examples of the activities given integrate other learning areas such as arts and crafts, sensory activities and fine motor skills as well.

Activity 1: Read ‘Chrysanthemum’ by Kevin Henkes

Chrysanthemum book is recommended for children age 4 to 8 years old. From my personal experiences, it may be a little bit too complex for 4 year-olds and I think it is more enjoyable for 5 year-olds and above. Below you will find some activities and questions that you can do / ask to actively engage your children when reading the book. After the story your children should be able to retell some parts of from the story (e.g. plot, characters, main events, problems, ending, etc.), share their thoughts about the story, relate with their own personal experiences if any or imagine what they would have done, said or felt if they are to be put in the same situation / predicament as the main character, etc.

Below are the lists of some suggestions for activities and questions that you can ask your children before and after reading the story.

Before Reading Activities

There are three different activities below that you can do before reading the book to your children. You do not have to do all three, just choose one.

Introduce the story to the children

For example: Today we are going to read the story ‘Chrysanthemum’ by Kevin Henkes. It is about a little mouse named Chrysanthemum. Do you know what chrysanthemum is? Do you think that the little mouse like her name? Do you like the name Chrysanthemum? Do you know anyone with that name? etc.)

Picture Walk

Go through the book with the children without actually reading the story but just looking at the illustration and talk about it. For example it may go something like this: Today we are going to read this book called Chrysanthemum by Kevin Henkes (show the book to the children). Let’s look at the illustration on the cover, there is a mouse and a flower. Before we read the story, let’s look at all the illustrations and see what is happening. Let’s look at the first page, Oh...I see a sleeping little mouse in a little bassinet. Let’s turn the page and see what happens next, Oh...there are many pictures of the mouse, let’s see what she is doing...

Talk to children about their names

Ask them questions like:

What do you think about your name?

Do you know who chose the name?

Do you know anyone that has the same name as you?

What do you like about your name?

What do you not like?

If you can have another name, what would it be? Why?

After Reading Activities

After reading the story you can review the storyline and get children to share what the think about the story, the characters, find out if they have had similar experience as the characters, let them try to put themselves in the character’s shoe, let them imagine what they would have done, etc.

Some examples of questions you can ask:

Why did Chrysanthemum parents choose this name for her?

How did Chrysanthemum feel about her name in the beginning of the story?

What happened that change her feelings about her name?

What did Chrysanthemum’s friends do that make her sad?

What did her parents do to make her feel better?

What happened at school in the end that help make Chrysanthemum feel good again?

Do you like the story? Why?

What do you think about Chrysanthemum’s friends?

Has anyone ever make fun of your name? or Anything about you?

What would you say to Chrysanthemum if you could?

What would you have done if you are Chrysanthemum?

Activity 2: Learn the letters in your name

Learning the letters in the name help your children to recognize and to form their names. Depending on your children’s abilities you can start by focusing on the first letter of their names and then move on to the rest or learn the names as a whole.

Some examples of activities that you can do are:

My Name Starts with the Letter...

This is an art integrated activity. For this activity you can use a printable that I have created. Children have to choose the letters that their names start with and then they decorate it in anyway they like using various craft tools and materials like glitters, markers, oil pastel, water color, loose parts, yarns, dot markers, etc. You can print the printable on A4 size drawing block if you want your children to use paint or water colors to decorate the letters.

Click on the picture below to find out how you can download these printables.

My Special Name Preschool Theme Activity. All about my name free printable.

Activity 3: Practice tracing and writing own name

Name is often the first word that your child learn to write. There are many fun ways you can let your children practice writing their names such as:

Using sensory writing trays filled with shaving cream, sand, glitters, colored rice, etc.

Using squishy bag for a mess free alternative. Create your squishy bag by filling a zip lock bag with some paint, shaving cream, hair gel, etc. Seal the bag and make sure there are no air bubbles. Your children practice writing their names with Q tips, their fingers, crayon, etc.

When your children are more confident in writing their names, you can use the name writing printables that I have created for more practice.

Choose the printable you like and on the pictures below to download.

Who is the director of the Secret Service? Kimberly Cheatle has led agency since 2022

A House Republican leader is planning for an oversight hearing with the U.S. Secret Service after President Donald Trump was shot in the ear at a campaign rally in Pennsylvania on Saturday evening.

Sunday morning the FBI identified Thomas Matthew Crooks as the gunman who opened fire at Trump's rally . The Secret Service reported that the shooter and one rally attendee are dead. Two spectators are critically injured following the shooting.

House Committee on Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer, R-Kentucky, made the request for a briefing with the Secret Service and said he would call Kimberly Cheatle, the agency's director, to testify at a hearing.

"My prayers are with President Trump and the victims of the assassination attempt at today’s rally in Pennsylvania. I thank the brave Secret Service members who put their lives at risk to protect President Trump and for the American patriots in the audience who helped innocent victims," Comer said in a news release Saturday. "Political violence in all forms is unamerican and unacceptable. There are many questions and Americans demand answers. I have already contacted the Secret Service for a briefing and am also calling on Secret Service Director Kimberly Cheatle to appear for a hearing. The Oversight Committee will send a formal invitation soon.”

So who is Kimberly Cheatle?

Who is in charge of the Secret Service?

Kimberly Cheatle was sworn in as the 27th director of the U.S. Secret Service in September 2022. She was selected by President Joe Biden in August 2022.

Cheatle has served more than 25 years with distinction for the United States Secret Service across a number of leadership roles. She worked on the Vice Presidential Protective Division, and in 2021, Biden awarded Cheatle with a Presidential Rank Award.

What does the director of the Secret Service do?

In Cheatle's role as director of the U.S. Secret Service, she is in charge of executing protection and investigations for the agency.

The workforce is composed of multiple divisions within the Secret Service including Special Agents, Uniformed Division Officers, Technical Law Enforcement Officers and Administrative, Professional and Technical personnel, according to the Secret Service's website .

What did Kimberly Cheatle do before the Secret Service?

Prior to becoming the Secret Service director, Cheatle worked for PepsiCo as the senior director in Global Security, according to her biography with the Secret Service . There, Cheatle oversaw and directed security protocols for the company's facilities in North America.

Cheatle was the agency's assistant director of the Office of Protective Details, prior to joining PepsiCo. She also served as the Special Agent in Charge of the Secret Service's Atlanta Field Office. In that position, she provided oversight for all missions related to investigation, protective intelligence and protective visits in the state of Georgia.

When will the director of the Secret Service testify?

🚨BREAKING🚨 @RepJamesComer has invited U.S. Secret Service Director Kimberly Cheatle to testify at a hearing on Monday, July 22. Americans demand answers about the assassination attempt of President Trump. pic.twitter.com/zKia2oIxCf — Oversight Committee (@GOPoversight) July 14, 2024

The hearing is expected to take place July 22, 2024, according to a letter from the Committee on Oversight and Accountability.

When was the Secret Service created?

Established in 1865, the U.S. Secret Service is one of the country's oldest federal law enforcement agencies. The U.S. Secret Service Uniformed Division protects the White House Complex and Naval Observatory, according to the Secret Service's website .

One of the newest expansions of the Secret Service's protective missions includes the issuance of Presidential Decision Directives. This established the agency as the lead for coordinating the development and implementation of security plans for National Special Security Events. This covers presidential inaugurations, State of the Union Addresses and other events of national significance.

Trump target of assassination attempt; says he was shot in ear at rally

BUTLER, Pa. — Former President Donald Trump was injured in an assassination attempt Saturday when a gunman opened fire at his campaign rally, killing one spectator and bloodying Trump’s ear.

The shooter, who appeared to take an elevated position on a rooftop outside the venue, is dead. Another two spectators were critically injured. Trump’s campaign said he was safe.

The FBI identified the shooter as 20-year-old Thomas Matthew Crooks of Bethel Park, Pennsylvania. A motive was not immediately clear.

In a harrowing and chaotic scene, Trump was about six minutes into his remarks in western Pennsylvania when pops of gunfire rang out. The Republican presidential contender grabbed his right ear and then got to the floor, where he was immediately swarmed by Secret Service agents who piled on top of him to protect him.

The agents then helped Trump to his feet, surrounded him and rushed him offstage to a waiting vehicle. Trump — with blood on the side of his head and ear — repeatedly pumped his fist in the air and waved as the crowd cheered.

Trump said in a post on Truth Social about 2½ hours later that a bullet “pierced the upper part of my right ear.”

“I knew immediately that something was wrong in that I heard a whizzing sound, shots, and immediately felt the bullet ripping through the skin,” Trump wrote. “Much bleeding took place, so I realized then what was happening.”

Trump thanked law enforcement in his online statement and extended condolences to the families of the people killed and injured.

“It is incredible that such an act can take place in our Country,” he wrote.

The shots were fired from outside the Secret Service security perimeter for the rally, according to three senior U.S. law enforcement officials.

Reporters saw smoke and heard what they initially thought were fireworks before everyone ducked and law enforcement encircled Trump.

Screams rang out from the audience as the scene unfolded.

Pennsylvania Gov. Josh Shapiro said in a statement shortly after 11 p.m. that Trump “has now left the Butler area.”

Follow live updates on the Trump rally shooting

A doctor attending the event told NBC News that he saw a man suffer a gunshot wound to the head and helped carry him from the site of the rally. Speaking in a parking lot near the event, a mother and her son who were attending the rally told NBC News that they saw people in the crowd who were injured and carried away. And in the hours after the shooting, Rep. Ronny Jackson, R-Texas, said in an interview on Fox News that his nephew was grazed on his neck by a bullet at the rally.

Donald Trump

People remained at the scene for 10 to 15 minutes after Trump was taken away, after which they were told it was an active crime scene and all attendees were escorted out.

Trump spokesperson Steven Cheung said Trump “thanks law enforcement and first responders for their quick action during this heinous act.”

“He is fine and is being checked out at a local medical facility,” Cheung said. “More details will follow.”

Trump senior advisers and leaders of the Republican National Committee released a statement later Saturday night saying that the former president “looks forward to joining you all in Milwaukee as we proceed with our convention to nominate him to serve as the 47th President of the United States.”

The Republican National Convention, where Trump is set to officially become the GOP presidential nominee, is set to begin on Monday.

FBI leads investigation

The FBI is leading the investigation into the shooting, according to a statement from the bureau. Agents are working alongside the Secret Service, as well as state and local law enforcement, and they are treating the rally site as an active crime scene, officials said at the press conference late Saturday night.

Law enforcement used DNA to help confirm the suspect’s identity, as he did not have identification on him during the shooting, FBI Special Agent Kevin Rojek said at the press conference in Butler, without identifying Crooks.

In the aftermath of the shooting, the FBI deployed investigative agents, bomb technicians and evidence response personnel.

Rojek asked that witnesses to the shooting contact the FBI.

There is no sign that the attack has any link to a foreign actor, a U.S. official said earlier on Saturday.

House Speaker Mike Johnson, R-La., said in a statement on X that he has been briefed by law enforcement. He condemned the attack as a “horrific act of political violence at a peaceful campaign rally,” saying it “has no place in this country and should be unanimously and forcefully condemned.”

Johnson said in a later post that the House would conduct a “full investigation of the tragic events today.”

House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer, R-Ky., said in a statement on X that he was “calling on Secret Service Director Kimberly Cheatle to appear for a hearing.”

In a letter to Cheatle, Comer requested that she voluntarily appear at a committee hearing on July 22.

Biden, political world react

President Joe Biden spoke with Trump later on Saturday, according to a White House official. He also spoke with Shapiro and Butler Mayor Bob Dandoy. 

In remarks delivered from Delaware, Biden called the attack “sick” and thanked law enforcement in remarks delivered on camera.

“There’s no place in America for this kind of violence. It’s sick. It’s sick,” Biden said. “It’s one of the reasons why we have to unite this country. We cannot allow for this to be happening.”

“Everybody must condemn it,” Biden added.

Asked by a reporter whether he believed that the attack on Trump was an assassination attempt, Biden responded that he didn’t “know enough” to say at the time.

“I have an opinion, but I don’t have any facts,” he said, adding that he wanted to gather all of the facts first.

Biden also said in a statement that he is praying for Trump. He said he has been briefed on the shooting.

“I’m grateful to hear that he’s safe and doing well. I’m praying for him and his family and for all those who were at the rally, as we await further information,” Biden’s statement said. “Jill and I are grateful to the Secret Service for getting him to safety. There’s no place for this kind of violence in America. We must unite as one nation to condemn it.”

Biden learned about the attack when he was coming out of church services, according to a person familiar with the timeline of events. He wanted to address the nation as soon as he was fully briefed, the source added.

Vice President Kamala Harris has also been briefed, she said in a statement.

She said she her husband, Doug Emhoff, “are relieved that he is not seriously injured. We are praying for him, his family, and all those who have been injured and impacted by this senseless shooting.”

She added that “violence such as this has no place in our nation,” urging everyone to “condemn this abhorrent act.”

In the minutes after the incident unfolded, politicians began posting on social media that they were praying for Trump, including three vice presidential contenders, Sen. JD Vance , R-Ohio, Sen. Marco Rubio , R-Fla., and North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum .

Donald Trump Jr., one of the former president’s children, wrote on X that his father will “never stop fighting to Save America.” His message was accompanied by a photo of his father pumping his fist with blood on his face.

Democratic leaders also released statements expressing horror.

“I am horrified by what happened at the Trump rally in Pennsylvania and relieved that former President Trump is safe,” Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said o n X . “Political violence has no place in our country.”

Shapiro, Pennsylvania’s Democratic governor, condemned the attack on X, as well.

“Violence targeted at any political party or political leader is absolutely unacceptable,” Shapiro said . “It has no place in Pennsylvania or the United States.”

Shapiro added that he has been briefed on the situation and that state police were on the scene, working with federal and local partners.

Independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. urged Americans to pray for Trump.

“Now is the time for every American who loves our country to step back from the division, renounce all violence, and unite in prayer for President Trump and his family,” Kennedy said .

Former Rep. Gabby Giffords, D-Ariz., who was shot in 2011, released a statement condemning political violence.

“Political violence is terrifying. I know,” she said. “I’m holding former president Trump, and all those affected by today’s indefensible act of violence in my heart. Political violence is un-American and is never acceptable — never.”

House Majority Leader Steve Scalise, R-La., who was shot and injured in 2017 when a gunman opened fire on Republicans during a baseball practice, condemned “incendiary rhetoric” ahead of the attack about a second Trump term being a threat to the country.

“That incendiary rhetoric needs to stop, because all it takes is one person who’s just unhinged to hear that and go act on it, and think that that’s their signal to go take somebody out,” Scalise said during a Fox News interview.

Trump’s campaign is in a “complete communications lockdown,” according to a message sent to staff members by James Blair, the political director for the Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee.

“Everything is OK,” Blair wrote. “We have no details to share at this time but will follow up soon with more information.”

A Biden campaign official told NBC News that the campaign is also “pausing all outbound communications and working to pull down our television ads as quickly as possible.”

This is a breaking news story and will continue to be updated.

Brewers Designated Former Houston Astros Ace for Assignment

Matthew postins | 21 hours ago.

Jul 7, 2024; Los Angeles, California, USA; Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Dallas Keuchel (60) throws during the second inning against the Los Angeles Dodgers at Dodger Stadium.

  • Houston Astros

Dallas Keuchel, the former Houston Astros ace who won the 2015 Cy Young award, was designated for assignment by the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday, putting him a position to hit free agency once again.

The move was posted to the MLB transactions log .

The 36-year-old left-hander can now be claimed by another team off waivers, or the Brewers can trade him to another team. If he clears waivers, the Brewers can re-sign him to a minor-league deal or Keuchel can opt to be a free agent.

The Brewers acquired Keuchel from the Seattle Mariners on June 25 in a cash trade. He had signed a minor-league deal with the Mariners in April and in May, the second time after Seattle released him.

Milwaukee was in need of a spot starter due to injuries and Keuchel fit in with four starts, during which he did not figure in a decision. In 16.2 innings he struck out 11 and walked eight while batters hit .329 against him.

His last start with the Brewers against Washington on Saturday saw him allow three earned runs on eight hits in three innings.

It’s been a rough run for Keuchel since he left Atlanta after the 2019 season to sign a three-year, $55 million deal with the Chicago White Sox. While he went 6-2 with a 1.99 ERA in the pandemic-shortened 2020 season, he followed that with a 9-9 2021 with a 5..28 ERA as he struggled with a back injury.

He didn’t finish the 2022 season with Chicago as the White Sox designated him for assignment after he had a 7.88 ERA in eight starts.

From there, Keuchel bounced around, signing with Arizona, Texas, Minnesota, Seattle and Milwaukee on minor-league deals. He’s never re-captured the form that he had in Houston, as he’s pitched in just 20 games since leaving the White Sox.

Keuchel broke in with Houston in 2012 after he was selected by the Astros in the seventh round of the 2009 MLB Draft out of Arkansas.

Once he reached the Majors, he quickly became an integral part of the Astros’ rebuild, which led to its first World Series title in 2017.

His Cy Young season in 2015 saw him go 20-8 for Houston with a 2.48 ERA, as he led the American League win in wins, shutouts, innings pitched and WHIP. He also struck out 216. He also finished fifth in AL MVP voting.

With Houston he went 76-63 with a 3.66 ERA. The two-time All-Star and five-time Gold Glove winner has a career record of 103-92 with a 4.04 ERA.

A look at the history of presidential assassination attempts in America

The assassination attempt of former President Donald Trump has parallels to the last time a president or presidential candidate was wounded — in 1981, when Ronald Reagan was nearly killed by an assailant’s bullet.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Before Saturday’s attempted assassination of former President Donald Trump, there have been multiple instances of political violence targeting U.S. presidents, former presidents and major party presidential candidates.

A look at some of the assassinations and attempted assassinations that have occurred over the decades:

▶ Follow the AP’s live coverage on the Trump rally shooting

ABRAHAM LINCOLN, the 16th president

Lincoln was the first president to be assassinated, shot by John Wilkes Booth on April 14, 1865, as he and his wife, Mary Todd Lincoln, attended a special performance of the comedy “Our American Cousin” at Ford’s Theatre in Washington.

Lincoln was taken to a house across the street from the theater for medical treatment after he was shot in the back of the head. He died the next morning. His support for Black rights has been cited as a motive behind his killing.

Two years before the assassination, during the Civil War, which was fought over slavery, Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation granting freedom to slaves within the Confederacy.

Lincoln was succeeded by Vice President Andrew Johnson.

Booth was shot and killed on April 26, 1865, after he was found hiding in a barn near Bowling Green, Virginia.

What to know :

  • Timeline of events : How the assassination attempt on former President Donald Trump unfolded.
  • On the suspect : What we know about the 20-year-old man who tried to assassinate Trump .
  • Motive still not known : The FBI said that it had not yet determined a motive , but the agency believed that the shooter acted alone.
  • Biden’s response : The president appealed for “unity” and said he was ordering an independent security review.
  • A “man of conviction” : Victim Corey Comperatore, a former fire chief, used his body to shield his family from gunfire.

JAMES GARFIELD, the 20th president

Garfield was the second president to be assassinated, six months after taking office. He was walking through a train station in Washington on July 2, 1881, to catch a train to New England when he was shot by Charles Guiteau.

Alexander Graham Bell, the telephone inventor, tried unsuccessfully to find the bullet lodged in Garfield’s chest using a device he designed specifically for the president. The mortally wounded president lay at the White House for several weeks but died in September after he was taken to the New Jersey shore. He had held office for six months.

Garfield was succeeded by Vice President Chester Arthur.

Guiteau was found guilty and executed in June 1882.

WILLIAM McKINLEY, the 25th president

McKinley was shot after giving a speech in Buffalo, New York, on Sept. 6, 1901. He was shaking hands with people passing through a receiving line when a man fired two shots into his chest at point-blank range. Doctors had expected McKinley to recover but gangrene then set in around the bullet wounds.

McKinley died on Sept. 14, 1901, six months after opening his second term.

He was succeeded by Vice President Theodore Roosevelt.

Leon F. Czolgosz, an unemployed, 28-year-old Detroit resident, admitted to the shooting. Czolgosz was found guilty at trial and put to death in the electric chair on Oct. 29, 1901.

FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT, the 32nd president

Roosevelt, at the time the president-elect, had just given a speech in Miami from the back of an open car when gunshots rang out.

Roosevelt was not injured in the February 1933 shooting that killed Chicago Mayor Anton Cermak.

Guiseppe Zangara was convicted in the shooting and sentenced to death.

HARRY S. TRUMAN, the 33rd president

Truman was staying at Blair House, across the street from the White House, in November 1950 when two gunmen broke in.

Truman was not injured, but a White House policeman and one of the assailants were killed in an exchange of gunfire. Two other White House policemen were wounded.

Oscar Callazo was arrested and sentenced to death. In 1952, Truman commuted the sentence to life in prison. He was released from prison in 1979 by President Jimmy Carter.

JOHN F. KENNEDY, the 35th president

Kennedy was fatally shot by a hidden assassin armed with a high-powered rifle as he visited Dallas in November 1963 with first lady Jacqueline Kennedy. Shots rang out as the president’s motorcade rolled through Dealey Plaza in downtown Dallas.

Kennedy was rushed to Parkland Memorial Hospital, where he died soon after.

He was succeeded by Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson, who was sworn into office in a conference room aboard Air Force One. He is the only president to take the oath of office on an airplane.

Hours after the assassination, police arrested Lee Harvey Oswald after finding a sniper’s perch in a nearby building, the Texas School Book Depository.

Two days later, Oswald was being taken from police headquarters to the county jail when Dallas nightclub owner Jack Ruby rushed forward and fatally shot Oswald.

GERALD FORD, the 38th president

Ford faced two assassination attempts within weeks in 1975 and was not hurt in either incident.

In the first attempt, Ford was on his way to a meeting with California’s governor in Sacramento when Charles Manson disciple Lynette “Squeaky” Fromme pushed through a crowd on the street, drew a semi-automatic pistol and pointed it at Ford. The gun wasn’t fired.

Fromme was sentenced to prison and released in 2009.

It was 17 days later when another woman, Sara Jane Moore, confronted Ford outside a hotel in San Francisco. Moore fired one shot and missed. A bystander grabbed her arm as a second shot was attempted.

Moore was sent to prison and released in 2007.

RONALD REAGAN, the 40th president

Reagan was leaving a speech in Washington, D.C., and walking to his motorcade when he was shot by John Hinckley Jr., who was in the crowd.

Reagan recovered from the March 1981 shooting. Three other people were shot, including his press secretary, James Brady, who was partially paralyzed as a result.

Hinckley was arrested and confined to a mental hospital after a jury found him not guilty by reason of insanity in shooting Reagan. In 2022, Hinckley was freed from court oversight after a judge determined he was “no longer a danger to himself or others.”

GEORGE W. BUSH, the 43rd president

Bush was attending a rally in Tbilisi in 2005 with Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili when a hand grenade was thrown toward him.

Both men were behind a bulletproof barrier when the grenade, wrapped in cloth, landed about 100 feet away. The grenade did not explode, and no one was hurt.

Vladimir Arutyunian was convicted and sentenced to life in prison.

THEODORE ROOSEVELT, presidential candidate

The former president was shot in Milwaukee in 1912 while campaigning to return to the White House.

Roosevelt had previously served two terms as president and was running again as a third-party candidate.

Folded papers and a metal glasses case in Roosevelt’s pocket apparently blunted the bullet’s impact and he was not seriously hurt.

John Schrank was arrested and spent the remainder of his life in mental hospitals.

ROBERT F. KENNEDY, presidential candidate

Kennedy was seeking the Democratic presidential nomination when he was killed at a Los Angeles hotel — moments after giving his victory speech for winning the 1968 California primary.

Kennedy was a U.S. senator from New York and the brother of President John F. Kennedy, who was assassinated five years earlier.

Five other people were wounded in the shooting.

Sirhan Sirhan was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to death. That was commuted to life in prison, where Sirhan remains after his latest petition for release was denied last year.

Image

GEORGE C. WALLACE, presidential candidate

Wallace was seeking the Democratic presidential nomination when he was shot during a campaign stop in Maryland in 1972, an incident that left him paralyzed from the waist down.

Wallace, the governor of Alabama, was known for his segregationist views, which he later renounced.

Arthur Bremer was convicted in the shooting and sentenced to prison. He was released in 2007.

Secret Service Under Scrutiny After Assassination Attempt on Trump

President Biden calls for a review of the protective agency’s actions after the attack, which left an audience member dead and two critically wounded.

The reporters have covered presidential security over various administrations.

  • July 14, 2024

President Biden on Sunday called for an “independent review” of security measures before and after the attempted assassination of former President Donald J. Trump, while directing the Secret Service to review all of its security measures for the Republican National Convention this week.

Mr. Biden’s directive, though brief and without specifics, is likely to increase the scrutiny of the decisions and possible failures of the agency charged first and foremost with protecting the lives of the country’s current and former leaders, and their families.

Less than 24 hours after Mr. Trump was injured at a campaign rally in Butler, Pa., members of Congress were promising hearings and former law enforcement officials were questioning why the warehouse roof where the would-be assassin, Thomas Matthew Crooks of Bethel Park, Pa., fired shots was not covered by the Secret Service’s security perimeter, despite being within the range of some guns.

Mr. Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee, was herded off the stage and pronounced fine, but the gunman came shockingly close to succeeding. A spectator was killed in the shooting and two others were critically wounded.

“Congress will do a full investigation of the tragedy yesterday to determine where there were lapses in security and anything else that the American people need to know and deserve to know,” Speaker Mike Johnson, Republican of Louisiana, said Sunday on NBC.

The chair of the House oversight committee also asked the Secret Service director, Kimberly A. Cheatle, to testify at a hearing on July 22.
