Worth a Watch

 

My pedagogy professor showed this TEDTalk to us in class last week. I thought I’d share it with you (or possibly only myself, since I’m not sure how wide my readership is). I see a lot of my students, and even myself in Adichie’s discussion of the single story. It’s something I know we need to break out of, while realizing that there is fear involved in abandoning that which we’ve always known in order to embrace something else.
