Reflection: Discourse and Questioning Like links in a chain: Analyzing cause and effect relationships in "The Necklace" - Section 2: Building Knowledge: Modeling the Cause and Effect Chart


Before we dug into the story, I thought it would be a good idea to see how students feel about the role of women in 19th century France versus the role of women in American society today. Wow--what a discussion--although quite brief.

Here are some of my findings:

1) Some students think life was much simpler when women focused more on marriage and having a family.

2) Some students don't think that being a homemaker is as challenging as working outside of the household.

3) Some students think that men should be the breadwinner and take care of the bills.

These are just a few of the opinions brought forth during the titillating discussion.

I can't wait to be enlightened in the next one. The power of talk should not be undervalued.
