Lesson of the Week: The Single Story

The Single Story by Lindsay Mickles (Bulgaria ETA)

December just started, and that means 2018 is coming to a close. As we draw nearer to the end of the year, we often reflect on what we have accomplished (or not…) throughout the year. Earlier this year, the Fulbridge blog featured a series of pieces written by Fulbright ETAs placed around the world based on the theme of “The Single Story”.

Fulbridge blog editor and Bulgaria ETA Lindsay Mickles also designed a lesson for her students based on this theme, in which students watch a TED Talk on the subject by author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie before discussing stereotypes they may have about other groups of people, or that others may have of their own communities. You can access materials for this lesson below:

We’re almost finished with our Lessons of the Week for 2018, so remember to keep checking back every week in December!
