E.Q.  How do the narrative accounts reflect the individual writers’ perceptions of America?

How are the writer’s point of view, purpose, and  tone reflected in each narrative?

Vocabulary words:  Copious; pestilential

We read an excerpt from “The Interesting Narrative of the Life of Olaudah Equiano.”  We also read a brief history of Christopher Columbus and a portion of one of his journal entries. 

Homework:  Bring in completed myths by Friday.  Be prepared for a test on the passages we read today.
