Reflection: Real World Applications Afghanistan Women Writers Project: Researching Stories (Day 1 of 2) - Section 6: Follow-up Discusion


At first blush, the students were highly interested in this website.  It's relevant and engaging and interesting.   The voices represented on it express the range of concerns facing women today in Afghanistan, and I saw my students respond with concern and interest.  Since the purpose of this unit is to draw the students into a empathetic response to what they have learned in the past two units, I do think it is the right medium to offer them at this point.
