EXTRA CREDIT ANNOUNCEMENTS
[Follow the procedures governing submission of extra credit work described under 6. Extra Credit in our course policies.]
Ongoing Extra Credit Opportunities:
Go to Cunningham Memorial Library and watch In the White Man's Image, a 1992 documentary written and produced by Christine Lesiak. The film covers Lieutenant Richard Henry Pratt's attempts to "save" Native Americans from extermination by educating them in Western values and culture. Pratt's motto, "Kill the Indian and save the man," illustrates his perspective and suggests his relation to the notion of outside agents discussed by W.E.B. DuBois in "The Concept of Race." Write a 3-page, typed, double-spaced response linking the documentary to issues and/or readings discussed in this course.
Single Occasion Extra Credit Opportunities:
Taboo Topics. Attend this October 24 event from 5-7 pm in the Whitaker Room, Room 110G in University Hall and write a 3-page paper related what you learn from the event to issues and readings covered in ENG 340.
