Product Description
TED Talks are short (20 minutes or less) videos where people all over the world come to share their great ideas. These videos provide an excellent opportunity to expand your students' worldview and promote critical thinking. For five TED Talk videos (available on the TED Talks site or YouTube), I've created two critical thinking questions that allow students to think deeply on the ideas presented in the video. The questions should generate approximately a half-page response each.

The videos for this product are as follows:

Emergency Shelters Made from Paper - Shigeru Ban, an architect's quest to provide cheap and recyclable shelter to people in need

How Great Leaders Inspire Action - Simon Sinek explains how successful leaders think and present themselves differently

Let's Treat Violence Like a Contagious Disease - Gary Slutkin, a doctor who has worked around the world, examines the similarities between contagious diseases and violence and why they should be treated similarly

The Best Stats You've Ever Seen - Hans Rosling uses stunning visual effects to bring statistics alive to demonstrate world growth and argue for a world database for statistics

The Danger of a Single Story - Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, a Nigerian writer, tells her personal journey in an effort to illustrate the pitfalls of judging a person based on single narration of a group of people.
