As you read Alice Walker’s 1973 short story, “Everyday Use,” take notes on your first impressions, words that stand out, how characters are described, tensions that seem to exist in the story, and so on. Keep those notes for yourself (do not upload, but keep them for later use). After you have read the story, respond to [Wolfe & Wilder’s] questions focusing on the opposites strategy. 1. values does “Everyday Use” challenge, question, or affirm? You may want to list the values under the appropriate categories of “challenge,” “question,” and “affirm.” 2. Next, identify some opposites that seem to be in tension in the story. Make a list, like the one on page 125, comparing and contrasting these opposites. Some good options include: Mama vs. Dee Maggie vs. Dee cultural heritage vs. familial heritage lived heritage vs. learned heritage oppressor vs. oppressed Make detailed lists for at least two sets of opposites (you can select from the options above or use opposites that you noted on your own). A good list will note similarities as well as differences. Be prepared to share your lists with your classmates. 3. Review your lists, noting any surprising similarities in things that at first glance appear to be opposed—or surprising differences in things you assumed were similar. Use your observations to write one paragraph about “Everyday Use” using the opposites strategy. (Only one!) Upload your Word document with the lists, the notes you took on the lists, and the ONE paragraph you wrote about “Everyday Use” using the opposites strategy.
