After reminding students to turn in the Mascot Mini-Research activity, I started class by showing the “Proud to Be” video from the National Congress of American Indians. Students then discussed their findings in the aforementioned mini-research assignment. We also discussed what had been read in the Sherman Alexie novel so far, particularly talking about why the narrator tells us about some of the things he does. After this, students had reading time to get as far as they could. In the last few minutes of class, we began talking about inquiry questions.
