Consider reading the story of Squanto in this short book.
Squanto, Friend of the Pilgrims

To work over two weeks and be completed by our next zoom class -Wednesday, May 3rd:
 Choose either a confirmation or refutation argument based on Squanto.
 Read the story at least two times. Practice contemplation: what do you notice? Ask yourself the questions of confirmations – what is probable? What is proper? What is believable? What is clear? Ask the same questions for the perspective of a refutation.
 Choose which position you would like to “argue” – will it be a confirmation? Or a refutation?
 Narrate the story to someone. Tell the story back with confidence and a good speaking voice – practice elocution!
 Write paragraph #1 and #3 for the story on Squanto.
 Edit using the checklist.
 Practice reading your Squanto paragraphs and come prepared to read them at our next class in May.
 You do not have to submit them for marking – I look forward to hearing them.

 Complete the checklist for Refutation or Confirmation.

 Refutation or Confirmation essay on Pocahontas
Due before the end of April.
