I cried aloud, shaking my head all the while until I felt the cold blades of the scissors against my neck, and heard them gnaw off one of my thick braids. Then I lost my spirit. [11] Since the day I was taken from my mother I had suffered extreme indignities. People had stared at me. I had been tossed about in the air like a wooden puppet. And now my long hair was shingled like a coward's! In my anguish I moaned for my mother, but no one came to comfort me. Not a soul reasoned quietly with me, as my own mother used to do; for now I was only one of many little animals driven by a herder. —Zitkala-Ša (Gertrude Bonnin), "The School Days of an Indian Girl," in The Online Archive of Nineteenth-Century U.S. Women's Writings, ed. Glynis Carr, posted Winter 1999, http://www.facstaff.bucknell.edu/gcarr/19cUSWW/ZS/SDIG.html.
Question 2 of 20 Multiple Choice: Please select the best answer and click "submit." Click to read the passage from "Lifeboat Ethics," by Garrett Hardin. Then answer the question. What part of the passage best states Hardin's central argument? A. First, we must recognize the limited capacity of any lifeboat. B. For example, a nation's land has a limited capacity to support a population and as the current energy crisis has shown us, in some ways we have already exceeded the carrying capacity of our land. C. Metaphorically each rich nation can be seen as a lifeboat full of comparatively rich people. In the ocean outside each lifeboat swim the poor of the world, who would like to get in, or at least to share some of the wealth. D. If we divide the world crudely into rich nations and poor nations, two thirds of them are desperately poor, and only one third comparatively rich, with the United States the wealthiest of all.

Metaphorically each rich nation can be seen as a lifeboat full of comparatively rich people. In the ocean outside each lifeboat swim the poor of the world, who would like to get in, or at least to share some of the wealth. What should the lifeboat passengers do? First, we must recognize the limited capacity of any lifeboat. For example, a nation's land has a limited capacity to support a population and as the current energy crisis has shown us, in some ways we have already exceeded the carrying capacity of our land. —Garrett Hardin, "Lifeboat Ethics," Psychology Today, September 1974,

Read the following passage from "An Indian Father's Plea," by Medicine Grizzlybear Lake. My Indian child has a constitutional right to learn, retain, and maintain his heritage and culture. By the same token, I strongly believe that non-Indian children also have a constitutional right to learn about our Native American heritage and culture, because Indians play a significant part in the history of Western society. Until this reality is equally understood and applied in education as a whole, there will be a lot more schoolchildren in grades K-2 identified as "slow learners." My son, Wind-Wolf, is not an empty glass coming into your class to be filled. He is a full basket coming into a different environment and society with something special to share. Please let him share his knowledge, heritage, and culture with you and his peers. — Lake, Medicine Grizzlybear. "An Indian Father's Plea" by Medicine Grizzlybear Lake (a/k/a Robert G. Lake-Thom) as appeared in Orion magazine, Autumn 1995. Reprinted by permission of the author.
Question 4 of 20 Multiple Choice: Please select the best answer and click "submit." Click to read the passage from "An Indian Father's Plea," by Medicine Grizzlybear Lake. Then answer the question. Why would a letter from the author support his argument better than an essay? A. It can allow the audience to read it many times. B. It can let the author give lots of factual data to support his argument. C. It can be less threatening to a reader and more personal. D. It can give the author a chance to make mistakes.
Dear teacher, I would like to introduce you to my son, Wind-Wolf. He is probably what you would consider a typical Indian kid. He was born and raised on a reservation. He has black hair, dark brown eyes, olive complexion. And like so many Indian children his age, he is shy and quiet in the classroom. He is 5 years old, in kindergarten, and I can't understand why you have already labeled him a "slow learner." — Lake, Medicine Grizzlybear.

Read the following passage from "Lifeboat Ethics," by Garrett Hardin. Every human born constitutes a draft on all aspects of the environment: food, air, water, forests, beaches, wildlife, scenery and solitude. Food can, perhaps, be significantly increased to meet a growing demand. But what about clean beaches, unspoiled forests, and solitude? If we satisfy a growing population's need for food, we necessarily decrease its per capita supply of the other resources needed by men. India, for example, now has a population of 600 million, which increases by 15 million each year. This population already puts a huge load on a relatively impoverished environment. The country's forests are now only a small fraction of what they were three centuries ago and floods and erosion continually destroy the insufficient farmland that remains. Every one of the 15 million new lives added to India's population puts an additional burden on the environment, and increases the economic and social costs of crowding. However humanitarian our intent, every Indian life saved through medical or nutritional assistance from abroad diminishes the quality of life for those who remain, and for subsequent generations. If rich countries make it possible, through foreign aid, for 600 million Indians to swell to 1.2 billion in a mere 28 years, as their current growth rate threatens, will future generations of Indians thank us for hastening the destruction of their environment? Will our good intentions be sufficient excuse for the consequences of our actions?

Read the following passage from "An Indian Father's Plea," by Medicine Grizzlybear Lake. Wind-Wolf's educational setting has been not only a "secure" environment, but also very colorful, complicated, sensitive, and diverse. He has been with his mother at the ocean at daybreak when she made her prayers and gathered fresh seaweed from the rocks, he has sat with his uncles in a rowboat on the river while they fished with gill nets, and he has watched and listened to elders as they told creation stories and animal legends and sang songs around the campfires. He has watched the women make beaded jewelry and traditional native regalia. He has had many opportunities to watch his father, uncles, and ceremonial leaders using different kinds of songs while preparing for the sacred dances and rituals. — Lake, Medicine Grizzlybear.

Read the following passage from "Lifeboat Ethics," by Garrett Hardin. The harsh ethics of the lifeboat become even harsher when we consider the reproductive differences between the rich nations and the poor nations. The people inside the lifeboats are doubling in numbers every 87 years; those swimming around outside are doubling, on the average, every 35 years, more than twice as fast as the rich. And since the world's resources are dwindling, the difference in prosperity between the rich and the poor can only increase. As of 1973, the U.S. had a population of 210 million people, who were increasing by 0.8 percent per year. Outside our lifeboat, let us imagine another 210 million people (say the combined populations of Colombia, Ecuador, Venezuela, Morocco, Pakistan, Thailand and the Philippines) who are increasing at a rate of 3.3 percent per year. Put differently, the doubling time for this aggregate population is 21 years, compared to 87 years for the U.S. [10] The harsh ethics of the lifeboat become harsher when we consider the reproductive differences between rich and poor. —Garrett Hardin, "Lifeboat Ethics," Psychology Today, September 1974,

If Rainbow Bridge is worth seeing at all, then by God it should be easily, readily, immediately available to everybody with the money to buy a big power-boat. Why should a trip to such a place be the privilege only of those who are willing to walk six miles? Or if Pikes Peak is worth getting to, then why not build a highway to the top of it so that anyone can get there? What type of fallacy does Abbey's argument contain? A. Straw man fallacy B. Circular reasoning fallacy C. Slippery slope fallacy D. Ad hominem fallacy

Read the following passage from "An Indian Father's Plea," by Medicine Grizzlybear Lake. He is not culturally "disadvantaged," but he is culturally "different." If you ask him how many months there are in a year, he will probably tell you 13. He will respond this way not because he doesn't know how to count properly, but because he has been taught by our traditional people that there are 13 full moons in a year according to the native tribal calendar and that there are really 13 planets in our solar system and 13 tail feathers on a perfectly balanced eagle, the most powerful kind of bird to use in ceremonial healing. —Lake, Medicine Grizzlybear.
