The Literacy Narrative: Students will respond to and analyze the literacy narrative: “Superman and Me” by Sherman Alexie. Students will conduct research on the author and the historical era in which the work intends to depict, and then ascertain the significance of the piece as it relates to the genre used by writers to talk about their relationships with reading, discourse and composition, as well as to discuss the narrative as a mode to tell a story. Students will write an effective three-paragraph summary connecting the author and the work, and qualifying the work as an authentically told literacy narrative.
