Honors 11: Life and Debt

We first debriefed regarding the essay I assigned yesterday (yesterday’s post has sample topics and sample essays–not in our same scope but of a similar vein). We then began watching, using this viewing guide, the following clips from Stephanie Black’s 2001 documentary titled Life and Debt:

Clip 1, Clip 2, Clip 3 (2 parts), Clip 4, Clip 5, Clip 6, Clip 7 (you may skip this one if time is running short), and Clip 8. (All hours got through most of the second part of clip 3 around the 4:00-5:00 minute mark). We will finish watching these tomorrow before working on this synthesis work.

The synthesis work is due Monday along with the Pratt passage work (plus the annotated address/”speech”), and the Kincaid/A Small Place passage work.

Also, here’s information about the IMF, WTO and the World Bank.
