Group Two: Invisible in America: "In the American Society"
Group Three: Invisible in America: "Miss Clairol"
Each group draws distinct comparisons between the fictional characters in the story and the real people in Shipler's book, showing how reading Shipler has an effect on how we read short stories about the working poor. Each group delivers a 20-minute presentation on Friday.
Group One: The Segregated Military
Group Two: The Ku Klux Klan
Group Three: Racial Stereotypes: Jim Crow, Sambo, Coon, Mammy, etc.
Each group does individual internet searches on the topic, comes together on Wednesday to discuss what they find, and puts together a 20-minute presentation for the other two groups during Friday's class.
Group One: Details of the house, interior and exterior, except for the upper room
Group Two: Details of the upper room, except for the wall paper
Group Three: Details of the wall paper
For Wednesday's class, each group makes a thorough study of the topic and then makes a list of details. Make notes about what these details have in common: not what they mean, but what their similarities are. You are detectives in a crime scene: collect evidence only and leave the conclusions to the prosecutors.
