PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Leslie Marmon Silko uses a story telling competition set in 1492 in her narrative poem, “Long Time Ago,” to predict the encounter between Europeans and Native peoples in the Americas.

There are several links to videos, interviews, and resources for understanding the poem and the European and Indigenous encounter. Also included in the resource are videos with contrasting explanations of Christopher Columbus’s first voyage. A link to Howard Zinn’s first chapter from The People’s History of the United States, as well as a link to an NPR interview with Wilma Mankiller reflecting on Columbus Day is in the resource.

These lessons fit any Honors Literature class, Pre-AP, American Literature, AP English Language or Literature class to prepare students for AP English Language exams, Common Core extended response assessments, American Literature Course exams, the SAT and ACT essay and critical thinking activities. Now adaptable for ESOL classes.

The packet includes complete lessons, Common Core standards, essential and key questions. I've made the following revisions to this product: I have added an addendum that describes how to adapt the lessons for ELL students.
