The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian Storia Teaching Guide | Scholastic.com Book Summary Arnold, aka Junior, introduces his hardscrabble life on the Spokane Indian reservation in the first chapter called The Black-Eye-of-the-Month Club. Through his “absolutely true” diary, Arnold describes his impediments and vulnerabilities, the biggest of which is living on a reservation where he is a zero with a zero future. A pivotal conversation with a teacher spurs Arnold to make a daring life choice—to attend an all-white school miles from the reservation. His rocky start there, riddled with stereotypes and misunderstandings, slowly develops into surprising friendships and successes in academics and basketball. Meanwhile, his family life is shattered by deaths, poverty, and alcoholism. Heartbreaking, funny, and beautifully written, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian is based on Sherman Alexie’s own experiences growing up on the reservation. Contains mature content.

www.randomhouse.com.au/content/teachers/tsk absolutely true diary.pdf Banned Book Club: The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian | Bookmans Entertainment Exchange Because Sherman Alexie writes about sexual awareness and awakening in The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, one could understand why parents, librarians, school administrators and even some students deem the book as inappropriate. To suggest the book for a more mature audience might seem reasonable enough. The reality is that the main character, Arnold, is a freshman in high school and speaks in a relatable voice for young adults. The situations in the book correlate to real world experiences of high school aged people. As Alexie says, “I write books for teenagers because I vividly remember what it felt like to be teen facing everyday and epic dangers. I don’t write to protect them. Arnold is a teen boy growing up in poverty on the Spokane Indian reservation in Wellpinit, Washington. Reardan, the all white school Arnold transfers to, is 23 miles off the reservation. There’s an incredible sense of hope throughout Arnold’s story.

The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian Sherman Alexie, the author of The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, grew up on the Spokane Indian Reservation in Wellpinit, in the state of Washington. Sherman Alexie In the novel we meet Arnold Spirit Jr., a fourteen-year-old Indian. The character is partly based on Alexie’s own experiences. Arnold or Junior as he is often called, is the reservation outcast – an outsider – and he is routinely bullied and beaten up. His parents are alcoholics and the family poor. At times, poverty is just terrible and thus Arnold sometimes wishes that he could draw "a fist full of twenty dollar bills, and perform some magic trick and make them real". Arnold, like Sherman Alexie, makes a choice to leave the reservation and attend the white school 22 miles away in Reardan.
