Class Experience

"On the Banks of Plum Creek" by Laura Ingalls Wilder "On the Shores of Silver Lake" by Laura Ingalls Wilder "The Long Winter" by Laura Ingalls Wilder
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
These books are written from a pioneer's prospective and include some  racist thoughts towards Native Americans. I believe that the books move Laura and her mother's racist thoughts towards Native Americans in a healthier direction following the example of Laura's father and that should be highlighted. We will discuss how the U.S. treatment of Native Americans in this area spurred these racist attitudes among settlers and how stark language and cultural difference continued to fuel the difference and hate. Students will come to understand how damaging and deplorable these racist thoughts and actions were towards Native Americans. My goal with addressing this would be a to show how prejudice can develop easily when misunderstanding and misinformation is present.
