The World on the Turtle's Back

Good morning,
  This week you got your English Journal all set up. Today we begin to use it.

We've looked at several examples of Native American writings. Today we are going to tackle a longer piece. It is called The World on the Turtle's Back.

Your task today is to read through the text with one or two partners. As you read you'll see that the text is marked into segments with horizontal lines. Your group should stop at each of these breaks and write a short 3-4 sentence summary about that segment. You and your partners must have identical summaries. Talk about what you are going to write and help each other with spelling  and punctuation.

Note: Make sure you put this new work at the TOP of your English Journal. Make sure you include the date.
