Iowa Hall of Pride set up & your story
In my earlier posts I shared with you what the students at Johnston High School did after interviewing 6 Cultural Ambassadors from 6 different countries. Today their teacher and I will be going to the Iowa Hall of Pride to display majority of their work. The displays will be up for one month so that the student’s parents and the community have enough time to see them. I will share more information about this event a little later.
As I work on the post about the Iowa Hall of Pride I want to leave you with the video below. BUT, before you watch let me ask you this. Do you believe that culture is partially about story telling? The stories we tell let others know what we value, what we think about others and how we think about ourselves. When we tell stories we also share our views about what we think about other cultures. But what shapes our stories? Do we have the ability to challenge our stories?
