We began our unit on The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian with a few different anticipatory activities, including a general discussion of Native Americans, an agree/disagree activity, and defining some key vocabulary. Students received photocopies of the first chapter of the novel which they annotated while I read out loud. We discussed these annotations to wrap up class. Homework: read and annotate the second chapter, provided at the end of class, for next time.
