Short Writing Assignment 3 In “What Sacagawea Means to Me,” Sherman Alexie, a Native American of the Spokane tribe, expresses his mixed feelings about America. Write two paragraphs in which you explain your own mixed feelings about where you live. You can choose to write about America, or about a smaller area—the part of the country, your town, or your neighborhood. Review the writing process described in Short Assignments 1 and 2. Use those suggestions for roughing out your ideas, then completing a draft and polishing it.
