Readings due October 3
First, thank you for class today. Dr. Brunjes really enjoyed it, and I am grateful to you for helping me get through the observation.
Second, I need to cancel class for this Thursday. (I will also post this on the website.The President’s Office has scheduled a lunch at the same time as our class, and I must attend. The subject of the lunch is a history book that is being published in conjunction with Plymouth 400. As with many history books, the content is problematic for either its erasure or Native peoples or the misrepresentations/ mistakes. I’ll explain more when we meet again on Tuesday. I believe Kaleigh was to present, so we will push that to Tuesday as well and have two presentations.
Meantime, I would like for you to complete the set of readings for Thursday and Tuesday and write a response for each set. The readings should not be too difficult to complete. Thursday’s are on the Bering Strait next to Thomas King’s “The Truth about Stories” where you have another Skywoman story. Tuesday’s readings are relatively short and are about how we reframe Columbus Day. You may also want to look at this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k8PQXiJiLOY . I look forward to a rich discussion on Tuesday.
Below is another perspective on the Bering Strait but not required:

Teach Beyond Thanksgiving Myth
"Inclusion of Native topics in the curriculum should be interdisciplinary and take place all year round," Smith told Education Dive by email. "Rather than tie into Thanksgiving, focus instead on Native Heritage Month, and then continue integrating respectful lesson plans during every other month of the year, too."
