Honors 11: Day 2 of Kincaid

We continued with our passage work regarding the first chapter of A Small Place by Jamaica Kincaid. Once passages were found and discussed in small groups, I also asked you to write down 2-3 discussion questions stemming from specific quotes found, your small group conversations, our class discussion yesterday, your own thinking, etc. We then received points for participating in today’s student-led discussion.

Homework: Watch one of the following text sets:

Method Text Set 1: Garment Industry
Watch this, this, this, and this.

Method Text Set 2: Tech and Workers
Watch this, this, this, and this

Complete the method handout using one of the two text sets. (Hint: To fully document the binaries, strands, and repetitions, you’ll need to watch the commercials a few times each and take notes.)

And then you can just check out this picture riddled with devastating realizations about society for funsies:
