Today in class, we talked about post-colonial literature in preparation for the short story we are going to begin tomorrow. Here is the PowerPoint we discussed:

SLHFGRBW – Post-Colonial Literature

And here is the notes page that goes with it (which is for a grade):

SLHFGRBW – Presentation Notes

First period’s homework was to finish these notes and turn them in at the start of class tomorrow (period 3, 4, 6, and 7 finished in class).

Homework for periods 3, 4, 6, and 7 was to listen to a podcast about the Native American boarding school system and respond to some questions. Here are the links to those podcasts:
