The danger of a single story
Please watch Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s TED Talk: The Danger of a Single Story (Links to an external site.) at least twice. 
 You may also print out the transcript  and follow along. Then answer the questions below. Please answer each question in full, developed paragraphs and proofread your work. This assignment is worth 6 points.
    1    As clearly and succinctly as you can (and in your own words), explain what Adichie means when she talks about  or uses the phrase “single story.” What is a single story? What examples does Adichie give of single stories?
    2    Adichie says, “It is impossible to talk about the single story without talking about power.” In what ways is storytelling a form of power?
    3    What stories did you grow up reading/listening to? Could you identify with the characters in these stories? Why? Why not? Did these stories influence your perception of the world?
You will turn in at least three paragraphs for this assignment.
