For this week, you will view two documentaries and read one autobiographical essay and one scholarly essay that recount the Indian boarding school experiment in the United States and explain its intergenerational consequences. Building on the argumentative techniques that you read about in The Norton Field Guide to Writing, compose a 500-700 word argument in response to the following question:
What were the consequences of the Indian boarding school experiment for those who attended parochial and/or government-run schools? How and in what way did this cultural experiment affect both individuals and tribal culture? Please cite this week’s readings and documentaries as evidence to support your case.
