A quick update from the last post: I spent time discussing race with each one of my classes the next day. Over the next few days, word had spread and individual students sought me out to talk about it. We talked about so many things, and the students had a lot to contribute.
Each class’s discussion was different, and conversations morphed towards gender issues and consent. I showed them this video showing a woman walking in NYC and dealing with catcalls and creepy men (I know that there is an issue with race in this video also, but I think the message overall is relevant). As they watched it, I watched them. It was interesting to see their reactions – none of them had seen the video before. The girls faces either had horrified looks or nervous laughter (that weak laugh that we have been trained to do when they feel uncomfortable or scared). The boys were either shocked or laughed. It was a great learning opportunity and I’m happy I took the time out of traditional Biology curriculum for it.
Back to light hearted blogging! This was what I wore that week. Everything here is an oldie but goodie. I’ve had these Pilcro loafers for ages, but never wear them. I’m just too addicted to ankle boots! I had listed them on my Poshmark closet, but decided to take down the listing in keep them after all. I only just started listing things on Poshmark, and I’m feeling like it’s more trouble than it’s worth.
