Today we will continue our study with Native American memoirs.  We will start by revisiting the writing we did at the end of class yesterday.  We will share with our neighbors and then with the class (if you choose). 

Next, we will read and annotate Sherman Alexie's essay "Superman and Me."  As we read, again pay attention to the threats of single stories as well as any relationships between you and the story Alexie tells.

OBJECTIVE: Examine multiple Native American perspectives in order to combat the danger of a single story.  We will be writing our own learning to read memoirs soon!
