Today, we’re reading something a little different in David Treuer’s “Off the Land” from Harpers Magazine. Instead of our normal rhetorical analysis, take the story in. Consider the following questions as you read, and be prepared to share some of your responses in class:
- Which detail in the story felt most Minnesota, northwoods to you?
- What do you think of the people (characters) Treuer introduces?
- What do the illustrations add to the story?
- What did you learn about Leech Lake?
