African Short Story Unit
While still discussing the danger of a singe story, the African Short Story Unit focuses on basic elements of narration (plot, characterization, setting), furthers our understanding of tone and diction, and explores irony and symbolism -- all terms that we will continue to identify and examine through out the school year. This unit of study focuses on the IB-MYP key concept of communication as we discuss the global context of orientation of time and space. Inquiry questions we will explore during this unit are as follows: What is community? How should communities with different values resolve disagreements and conflicts when they come into contact with one another?
