This semester focuses on the idea of culture and context within literature. It is the main focus of Part 1: Works in Translation. Last night, for homework, they were asked to watch this video. They were then asked to submit discussion questions around the topic of the TED Talk "The Danger of a Single Story". One of the questions that has essentially dominated all of the discussions so far has been, "Does Ecuador have a single story?" More than anything I have experienced so far, this was the single best window into Ecuadorean culture. Yes, my students represent the top 1%, but they are still giving me perspective into so much of how they interpret the world´s view of them. It was absolutely fascinating, and it was just a great talk all around. I also revel in any chance to bring Adiche into my classroom because she is just so amazing.
