BEFORE YOU WATCH: Indigenous Americans and Globalization
Use the “Three Close Reads” approach as you watch the video below (next in the lineup!). If you want to learn more about this strategy, click here.
First read: preview and skimming for gist
Before you watch, you should skim the transcript first. The skim should be very quick and give you the gist (general idea) of what the video is about. You should be looking at the title, thumbnails, pictures, and first few seconds of the video for the gist.
Second read: key ideas and understanding content
Now that you’ve skimmed the video transcript and taken a quick peek at the video, you should preview the questions you will be answering. These questions will help you get a better understanding of the concepts and arguments that are presented in the video. Keep in mind that when you watch the video, it is a good idea to write down any vocab you read or hear that is unfamiliar to you.
By the end of the second close read, you should be able to answer the following questions:
- What are the two misconceptions about globalization that this video addresses?
- What are some examples of Indigenous Americans’ contributions to globalization?
- Who was Paul Cuffee Jr., and was globalization good for him?
- What sort of things do neoliberal policies promote?
- What is the Dakota Access Pipeline, and what does it tell us about the impacts of globalization on indigenous communities?
Third read: evaluating and corroborating
Finally, here are some questions that will help you focus on why this video matters and how it connects to other content you’ve studied.
At the end of the third read, you should be able to respond to these questions:
- What do historical examples of people resisting the changes connected to globalization share in common with the Dakota Access Pipeline protests?
Now that you know what to look for, it’s time to watch! Remember to return to these questions once you’ve finished watching.
