On a sheet of paper, answer the following questions as fully as you can!

1.) Which passage from the "I am a Man" reading intrigued you? Why did that passage pique your interest? Explain. (Make sure to include the page number.)

2.) Does your family, group of friends, social group have a tradition you keep? Do you have traditional songs you sing or music you listen to as a group? Are there routines or rituals you participate in as a group? Explain.

(Examples: birthday celebrations, holiday gatherings, etc.)


Pair up! With your partner, share your traditions!

Pair up with another pair! You will need to swap papers with your original partner. With your new partners, you will need to explain your original partner's tradition to the best of your ability.

Why would I ask you to share your traditions? What does this have to do with the Standing Bear reading?
