Today we started the Aboriginal issues unit and watched a bit further into Miss Representation.
Today we talked about various forms of protest. There is also a journal response with these guiding questions:
- What is the most effective form of protest? Why?
- What is the least effective form of protest? Why?
- Which type of protests are you comfortable doing?
- Is protesting an effective way to create change?
