Poetry Authorial and Cultural Background Notes(entitle a sheet of paper) (author) Tahnahga Meyers (bio also on p. 450): She is a Taino, Mohawk woman; ethno-botanist; herbalist, teacher, author. Earned a degree in Rehabilitation Counseling with an emphasis on chemical dependency and traditional healing methods for Native people. (culture) Native American Culture: • History rich in struggle, strife, and triumph • Many aspects of our modern life were adapted from the old Indian cultures practiced centuries ago • Many familiar symbols (some examples: teepee, totem pole, peace pipe, moccasins) that we take for granted were originated by Native Americans • Animals were revered as spirits, and although they were hunted and killed, their skins and hides were used as clothing and drums; meat was never wasted, and their spirits lived on in the mind of the tribes. • Rain and sun were considered to be Gods, giving a sign to the Indians as the seasons changed • Many people see dream catchers hanging from peoples’ car rearview mirrors; The dream catcher is based on a legend told by the Lakota tribe; it symbolizes holding onto good things in life, while the holes in the catcher are there to filter out bad thoughts and feelings.

Annotations on Tahnahga’s “Suburban Indian Pride” MP: Be proud to be Native American, but understand that others might not. SP EV: “Suburban Indian Pride.” The title shows how there’s a paradox “suburban” and “Indian.” SP EV: That day as we drove to our white suburban home fifty miles from the reservation. “Be Proud that you are Indian, but be careful who you tell.” (lines 27-32) Likes: On that blistering day/as the heat waves rose/from the black tarred highway (lines 1-3). I like the imagery Tahnahga uses. I can see and feel the heat! Like: I like the way the poem is organized. “Mom” is on separate lines, which shows a level of importance to the theme. The use of quotation marks around the last few lines “Be proud…” Like: I like the irony at the end. That day as we drove/to our white suburban home/fifty miles from the Reservation.” I didn’t expect that! Think Abouts: I wonder why they moved to the suburbs? Unfamiliars: Suburban, Blistering, Seminole Reservation, ringworm Reflect: Moving From Camp Creek Parkway to Marietta SOAPSTone:

Argument (writing section) Argument: Used for the purpose to persuade an audience using appeals to logos, ethos, pathos. Logos (logical appeal): a strategy in which a writer uses facts, evidence, and reason to make audience members accept a claim. Pathos (emotional appeal): a strategy in which a writer tries to generate specific emotions (fear, envy, anger, pity) in an audience to dispose to accept a claim. Ethos (character appeal): a strategy in which a writer presents an authoritative or credible self-image to convince an audience to accept a claim. Claim: a statement that asserts a belief or truth. In arguments, most claims require supporting evidence.
Why We Make Arguments Arguments to convince lead audiences toward conviction, toward agreeing that a claim is true or reasonable or that an action is desirable. Arguments to persuade aim to move others from conviction to action. Academic arguments often combine purposes. Arguments to Convince: Many reports, white papers (position/informational paper) , and academic articles typically aim to convince rather than persuade their audiences. Arguments to Persuade: in many situations, writers want not only to convince audiences but to move them to action, whether that involves buying a product, voting for a candidate, or supporting a policy. Advertisements, political blogs, YouTube videos, and newspaper editorials use all the devices of rhetoric to motivate action or produce change.
Why We Make Arguments (cont’d) Arguments to Inform: Often, writers argue to inform others, to give information, much like a bumper sticker that simply provides an organization's name and web address. Many student writers use Twitter to make arguments that inform. The classic poster announcing the first Batman film in 1989 carried the iconic image and only two words: “June 23.” Arguments to Explore: Many important issues today call for arguments to explore them. Exploratory arguments can also be personal, such as Zora Neale Hurston's iconic exploration of racism and of her own identity in “How It Feels to Be Colored Me.” Arguments to Make Decisions: similar to exploratory arguments are arguments that aim to make good, sound decisions, whether about cutting budgets or choosing a career. By the time you’ve explored the pros and cons of each alternative, you should be a little closer to a good decision.
Why We Make Arguments (cont’d) Arguments to Meditate or Pray: Sometimes arguments can take the form of prayer or intense meditations on a theme. In such cases, the writer or speaker is most often hoping to transform something in himself or herself or to reach peace of mind.
