  • for MONDAY May 2

    -- have read Toni Morrison's novel The Bluest Eye, including the "Afterword" where Morrison discusses many of her themes in the novel.
    -- in addition, have a look at this Dick and Jane site, and follow the links to see visually what Morrison refers to in the opening of many sections of The Bluest Eye. (This site actually sells Dick & Jane books, so don't accidentally buy one. I'll have an actual Dick & Jane text on hand to show you in class -- as well as Mary Janes!) Think of the impact such visual images could have on Black children (or any child who didn't fit the norm presented in these images: poor kids, gay kids, single-parent kids, girls, etc.)

  • for WEDNESDAY May 4

    -- we'll continue with The Bluest Eye.

  • for FRIDAY May 6

    -- we'll finish with The Bluest Eye.
