Students were involved in a unit about approaching adulthood, and the story Marigolds was read. This article was related to the American Dream and Rihanna's song "American Oxygen". It focuses on the song's music video-- the allusions, symbols, themes, and questions for thought-- all connecting the past to our present American Dream. What does this mean for our students? It's a good discussion piece for the students and it brings in great pop culture to the classroom-- something the students can greatly relate to.
