In the last week or so, we have continued discussing stereotypes and the impact of a single story. To that end, we finished our stereotypes concept map and watched a lovely TED talk by a Nigerian author, Chimamanda Adichie.
This week, we'll explore the concept of a single story and "street calculus" in the context of a short story/essay by the author Jesus Colon.
We're working hard on diving into these challenging concepts! The students are showing some great depth of thought and serious consideration of these themes.
