This week in class, we’re reading “Cell One” by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.
In Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s short story “Cell One,” a girl’s brother is arrested and is changed by the injustices he witnesses in prison.
As we read, we will be discussing the themes of Growing Up, Justice, Freedom & Equality, and Morality as they relate to the text. We are trying to answer these big questions :
“What does it mean to be grown up?”, “What is good and how do we know?”, and “What is fair?”
Ways to support your child:
- Ask your child about this short story at home:
- What was “Cell One” about?
- What did you learn about? About Justice, Freedom & Equality? About Morality?
- Watch the following clips with your child at home:
