Hi! My name is Mattie Talbert and I teach English and career prep at Westwood High School in Blythewood, SC. I have a bachelor's degree in English from the University of South Carolina as well as a master's degree in teaching from the University of South Carolina. I'm originally from Irmo, SC, and love it here at Westwood!
Thanks! One of my coaching teachers during my student teaching showed this video to her creative writing class and it stuck with me and I got the stereotype activity from online and adapted it. I think that's a great idea to incorporate fake news and freedom of speech! Thanks for the ideas!
Me too! I'm working with high school freshmen. We talked about different stereotypes in school and which stereotypes they fit into based on what they had heard about them. They were engaged and seemed to enjoy the activity!
