PowerPoint. 56 slides. Begins with the famous painting "The Death of Jane McCrea" by John Vanderlyn. In notes, see my questions for what to have students look for/ discussion points to reveal artist's bias and/or commonly held beliefs of the time period. Introduces students to the genre of captivity narratives through an overview of John Smith's and Mary Rowlandson's. No additional supplies are necessary, but we read a two page informative piece on Mary Rowlandson from our big literature book along with this powerpoint. Details of the Carlisle school for Native Americans and many riveting images included. Crazy Horse Memorial--the concept behind the project, the phases it has gone through, current status and future completed image. Ends with a discussion on stereotypes. View a brief clip from Smoke Signals where two Native Americans are talking and stereotypes are (humorously) embedded in their discussion.
