you will write a 3-5 page paper in response to the general prompt (below) using any of the
texts we have read over the Quarter. You will select the text, or texts, you want to write about, write
the response, and place it into a Submission folder titled “FINAL RESPONSE” by or before noon Tue
Nov 21. I will open that folder on Mon Nov 13, which is the end of our class and Quarter, in case you
want to submit it early. Please submit your paper ONLY as a Doc, or Docx. No PDFs please.
You may select 1 or as many of our texts as you wish to use for your response. Your response can be
about an entire book, or 1 or 2 stories, or 1 or 2 poems, or 1 or 2 chapters. It’s up to you how
scholarly you want this response to be, but I expect that it will be somewhat more formal than the
responses you have been asked to write so far. The goal of the response is to explore the text as
Literature AND as Native Literature. Establish a premise/topic/subject in relation to the text, then
“make a case” for or “contemplate” your premise using the text, your own thinking, and your own
ideas. You must cite from your selected readings at least 3 times total over the course of your
response. You may refer to a source outside of our reading list, but please make only 2 citations in
total from those outside sources.
**** Here is your very general prompt for your response: After completing the class how do
you view reading Native literature as a means to encounter Native experience, lives, ideas,
beliefs, histories, etc? How has your encounter with the literature influenced your own
thinking about not only these Native issues but also about your own Identity, etc?
