Reflection: Real World Applications Introduction to Social Criticism Vocabulary - Section 2: Introduction to Social Criticism Vocabulary


I always enjoy introducing students to this set of terms. The personal experiences and observations are always insightful. Simply going over the definitions of a long set of terms seems like a questionable plan, but I use this method with this set of terms because it always turns into an engaging conversation where students feel free to share and I can see that I am offering them one way of making sense of their world. Some of the examples I mention in the video indicate the ways in which students were able to make connections to their lives and things they think about. For instance, the student who suggested that a teenager living under their own rules is an example of autonomy shared that he has been able to gain that sort of independence from his parents, though he still needs them for basic needs.
