E Block Juniors: Kumashiro's Lens
Respond to the prompt in a well-developed essay (27-point test). You may use your notes, annotations, and reading materials. You may not borrow anyone else’s work after beginning the essay. Post the essay as a comment to this post. It is wise to type and save in Word as a precautionary measure. I have posted a Kumashiro copy on Edline that you may use for extracting quotes (a time-saver).
Remember- this is a high-level reading and writing task. It will require some deep thinking and precise writing on your part, but you can do it. Be confident and draw connections and meaning from the works. Show me that you can synthesize sophisticated works under pressure.
Be sure to use MLA for citations, quotes, and works cited.
Apply the principles posited by Kumashiro to Alice Walker’s The Color Purple. How does his unique lens alter the effects of the novel and its place in the American literature canon?
