Then students wrote down one question that they had about the essay (something that confused them or that they wondered about). These questions will be used to start class on Monday when we are back in the school.
Two key themes we have been focusing on this week are:
A. The importance of exposure to other perspectives and beliefs from our own.
B. The value of storytelling
Both themes will link directly to our activities on Thursday and Friday.
Students did a quick partner activity where they had to talk continuously for one minute to a partner and then listen for one minute. This is an introduction to our work on oral storytelling.
Ms. Searcy gave an example of an oral story by telling about her salmon mug.
We started watching "The Danger of a Single Story" TED talk again but ran out of time. We'll finish watching it on Monday.
Reminder: We are going to the En'owkin centre tomorrow so please be on time for class. There is no need to have any special clothing/footwear.
