1). In the essay you’ve just read,  A Different Mirror: A History of Multicultural America by Ronald Takaki, his central argument is that we need to look at history through a “different mirror,” one that reflects the way in which “Americans” have been constantly redefining their national identity from the moment of first contact on the Virginia shore. What does Takaki mean by “constantly redefining their national identity?” How does this differ from a metaphor that describes America as a “melting pot?” Why does Takaki consider it so important to listen to and study the stories that show how “American originated from many shores?” Do you feel that historical and literary texts about America should include the many different groups that Takaki refers to in his writing?
