This week, we will be focusing on language in class and how language is an important connection to one’s identity and cultural background. There are three questions for consideration before we have our discussion this Thursday.
- How is language important in Canadian society?
- Does language have a huge impact on relationships? Explain why or why not.
- How can you connect language to your own life?
Try and connect this piece by Plato (The Allegory of the Cave) to the concept of language.
Bring something from home or your life, some physical manifestation of what language means and how it affects not just your family but all of your social circles as well.
Is language a prevalent theme in larger society? How?
Let’s have a good discussion!
