For this first discussion post, watch this Ted Talk, The Danger of a Single Story. (Links to an external site.)
After watching the Ted Talk, think of the story that is most often told about your home or birth country or culture. Tell us a bit about that story. How has that story shaped who you are? Have you embraced that story or resisted it? What is the danger of that being the single story about your home/birth country or culture? Is there a different story you would like to share? Ask a question of your classmates about the story/stories you’ve shared. (up to 10 points) This is your story–write it in your style!
