Overview
Southwestern American Indian Literature: In the Classroom and Beyond addresses several challenges that teaching Southwestern American Indian literature presents, and suggests innovative ways of teaching the material. Drawing on the author s experiences teaching literature both in the classroom and in the canyons of the Southwest the book covers works ranging from the famous (Leslie Marmon Silko s Ceremony) to the underappreciated (George Webb s A Pima Remembers). One chapter discusses teaching Sherman Alexie s Smoke Signals along with Silko s -Yellow Woman- as world literature; another functions as a guide to organizing a travel seminar that will enable students to experience American Indian literature and culture in potentially life-changing ways. This book provides a practical approach to the teaching of Southwestern American Indian literature without simplifying its inherent challenges."
