7 September: Danger of a Single Story

Objective:

I can begin to reflect on and discuss how I currently see the world by considering my reading experiences and reactions to a TED Talk (RI 1 & 6).


Entry Task:

As you come in, prepare to play a round of Blooket on your phone or laptop to overview our unit vocabulary.


Once we are done with the game, store all electronic devices, and grab your binder and the following materials off the front table:

Add these materials, in this order, to the back of your binder.


Once settled in your seat with your materials, begin answering the questions on the front of your Danger of a Single Story sheet.


What’s Going On:

Today we will begin our first unit focusing on your current world-view. We will specifically discuss the purposes of this unit after reading our first couple of texts over the next few days.


Our focus today is on the TED Talk “Danger of a Single Story.” Please be aware, this TED Talk will act as a backbone for this entire unit and our course as a whole; we will return to it later in discussion and in other assignments.


Exit Task:

Be prepared to share your final answers as part of a class discussion.


After our discussion, use any remaining time to finalize any of our introduction work and store your binders neatly on the shelf.
