Reflection: Modeling Understanding Word Choice and Zora Neal Hurston's Feelings About Herself in How it Feels to be Colored Me - Section 5: Wrap Up

 

Students did not have enough time in this lesson to finish reading the essay but did give some examples of words or phrases that they felt expressed Hurston's self view as a person of color from the pages they read.  

I needed to facilitate their participation by offering an example, "...and I hope the Chamber of Commerce will please take notice" referring to her claim to be be the first "welcome to our state" Floridian and feeling very proud of herself.
