What are taboos? What are euphemisms and why do we use them? What happens to Angel Vargas in There Was a Lady Who Had So Many Children She Didn't Know What to Do?
Today we discussed all of these things in detail. After, we talked about the norms for our up-coming conversations. Tomorrow we will start with a discussion of sexual harassment and how it is portrayed in the stories that are due tomorrow. Students should read and write short summaries of each of the four stories listed in the slide show and on the main and assignments pages.
