Subjects vary by semester. Representative topic: Reading the American Wilderness. May be repeated for credit with different content.
Dates: June 19 - July 14, 2017
Fiction, myth, personal narrative, even film and song--contemporary American writing takes many forms but they all provide windows into the lives and dreams of America's forgotten minority. Among the themes we will explore are life on the rez, creation myths and vision quests, dealings with the white world, and reclaiming the past. In addition to reading and writing about the stories and poems in the texts, you'll get to see three great films: Dreamcatcher, Skins, and Smoke Signals. COURSE MATERIALS Nothing But the Truth: An Anthology of Native American Literature--Purdy and Ruppert; The Woman Who Fell from the Sky--Joy Harjo; The Way to Rainy Mountain--N. Scott Momaday; three DVDs: Dreamkeeper, Skins, and Smoke Signals. The bookstore will not be stocking these DVDs but you can order them from Amazon or rent from Google Play or Amazon. Because this course is designated D1, it will help you fulfill the Cultural Diversity requirement.
Plan to spend several hours a day on the course. Read the assigned text, articles, or websites for each lesson. Respond to each reading assignment in a reflective writing and/or a posting to the discussion board. Participate actively in all discussions in a timely fashion. Submit reading response (RR) essays following the guidelines as scheduled.
Course grade will be based on your reflective writings, contributions to the Discussion Board and four Reading Response essays.
