Product Description
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's "The Danger of a Single Story" Ted talk is an incredible speech to watch with students 6-12. I watch the talk and rad the transcript with my tenth graders, and the discussion and reflection after each view are consistently impressive. To help my students discuss the talk meaningfully, I developed these four printable tools: two listening guides, a text-connection tool, and a SOAPSTone analysis. Everything is ready-to-print and use. Answer key included!

-The listening guides work together to walk students through the talk, providing prompts before, during, and after viewing. Each prompt could also work as the lead-in to a discussion or Socratic Seminar.

-The text connection tool asks students to apply the concepts from "The Danger of a Single Story" to another book they've read in class. I use this with my unit on Things Fall Apart, but you could also use this with The Hunger Games, The Giver, Divergent, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, The Great Gatsby, 1984, or Animal Farm.

-The SOAPSTone analysis asks students to consider Adichie's rhetorical position and works well as a lead-in to persuasive writing or speaking.
