Please make sure you have seen the TEDTalk video "The Danger of a Single Story" (available on YouTube). The speaker is Chimamanda Adichie. The completed handout goes on p. 4 in your notebook.
We also read an article called "Body Ritual Among the Nacirema." That is available below if you did not receive a copy in class. Today (Wednesday) we'll be completing reflection questions on the article and talking about cultural rituals/customs/traditions from around the world.
Your first major writing assignment comes today: Write about a cultural ritual/custom/tradition that your family practices that others might find unusual or odd.
