The Danger of a Single Story | Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

"Novelist Chimamanda Adichie tells the story of how she found her authentic cultural voice -- and warns that if we hear only a single story about another person or country, we risk a critical misunderstanding."


As educators, it is our duty to challenge and unlearn the single stories we have been fed about students whose skin color, religion, or home language is not the same as ours - whether those single narratives lead us to fear or to pity, they always lead us to misunderstanding. After listening to this TedTalk, take a moment to examine the narratives you've internalized about the students you teach; only with an understanding of the whole child, of the whole picture, can you be the best version of yourself in the classroom.
