Emmett Till & OMAM Ch 4;

21 Dec

9th Grade:

We will watch the story of Emmett Till and discuss its connection to what Curley’s wife said to Crooks in chapter 4 of OMAM.

 

12th Grade:

We will be viewing the Black Mirror episode “Nosedive.” Think about how we rate each other online… likes, retweets, follows. On Uber, we riders and drivers rate each other. Often people will decide to use a driver or pick up a rider based on his/her rating. What if we continue in this direction? What if we rate each other on every interaction? What if we grant privileges and access to things based on our ratings? This episode deals with these questions. It’s some powerful social commentary!
