Welcome to the third quarter! Today we focused on the skill of contextualization by watching a bit of Star Wars (Episode IV, of course) and discussed why it is an important component in essays. Then, to give contextualization to our lesson on Native Americans in the late nineteenth century, we watched several clips about encounters between Anglo-Americans and Native Americans including the Battle of Little Bighorn and the Dawes Act.
We will be continuing tomorrow to use the DUSH book to create an outline and a contextualization statement.
HW: Reading Guide 6.1 due Wednesday, 6.2 due Friday, quiz on both on Friday
