Morrison’s bio and “Recitatif”
1. ORIGINAL POST (OP): Your original post should note something you found interesting or surprising in “Recitatif.” Include at least one direct quotation from Morrison’s short story.
Make sure your comments and observations are ORIGINAL. If you copy what others have said it will not count. This means you have to read other posts!
2. RESPONSE to someone’s OP: respond to someone else’s post with an answer to their question or a disagreement with an example. Don’t just say “I agree.”
Make sure in total you have written at least 300 words, spread across your two parts in any way.

· 2. What did the reading make you wonder about, want to know more about, or remind you of?

On a Word document, write a paragraph for each one of the FIVE TERMS BELOW making sure to 1) define and explain, and 2) provide an example from the
primary text reading to illustrate your understanding.
Primary text means the words BY the author we studied (Morrison, for example), not the reading we did ABOUT Morrison. Upload your completed document by the deadline stated above.
You should use your book (the Norton Anthology
) and materials I put on Moodle to help you NOT outside/online resources. IF YOU USE ANY OUTSIDE/ONLINE SOURCES TO ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS (AND REMEMBER THAT THESE ARE VERY EASY FOR ME TO LOCATE SINCE YOU ARE TURNING THIS IN THROUGH “TURN IT IN”), YOU WILL FAIL THE EXAM.
Follow these guidelines:
· Number your responses and state the term you’re responding to.
· Write at least
five complete sentences for each one.
must use a short direct quotation from the primary text you’re using as an example (this means from the literature we read
in Volume 2
, not the background information we read about the literature). This should be introduced (author and text) and documented correctly: For example, in
The Souls of Black Folk, W.E.B. DuBois writes, “The problem of the color line…” (3479).
· If you use a direct quotation from the book to define the terms, then you must document this, too.
· Do NOT use the same text OR author more than once. There are usually multiple correct examples to choose from for each.
Here’s an example of the format:
1. Vanishing Indian Myth
TERM: the “myth of the vanishing Indian” is an untrue belief that exists in American that all “real” Native Americans are dead now. It’s an important myth to America politically especially during the 19th century because US expansion policies needed Indians to be gone.
The Last of the Mohicans
EXPLANATION: Cooper establishes this myth by romanticizing American Indian identity as both exotic and vanished. The figure of Uncas is a good example of this myth because he seems to be doomed to vanish by the end of the narrative when he says to Natty Bumppo “we are the last of our kind” (342). Even though it was not true – Native Americans are not vanished – this myth is an important one to understand in the text and in general, since it helps us understand the politics and racism in American at that time and now.
