This handout is a list of ten original questions to assist in a guided discussion for the TedTalk "The Danger of a Single Story" by Chimamanda Adichie, organized in order of the talk and separated with time stamps. It also includes a writing prompt at the end. This TedTalk and the questions attached are very useful in helping students break apart the key concepts in the TedTalk and apply them to their academic setting as well as their personal lives.
