The bellwork deals with globalization, cultural borrowing, and cultural diffusion. I had students read the story and answer some questions about it before we discussed it.
This is a short post, but it's worth mentioning I'm giving students extra credit if they bring in a "Made in _______" tag. This extra credit only lasts this week. Also, they can only get credit for one tag, even if they bring in a box-full.
Students: if you want the extra credit for reading and discussing the blog, you have to (I'm sure you'll find this shocking) read and discuss the blog with an adult. Here are some things you may consider talking about:
- What was Libby's Story about
- What is a "world culture"
- What does interdependent mean?
- Do you use anything that comes from a different culture?
