A podcast about books from the Larissa Gerstel Critical Literacy Collection at American University in Washington DC.
Lauren,you do a good job of summarizing the text and sharing highlights from the text. In your audio you talk about how we all have particular beliefs but that deep down we are all very similar. What are some factors that you might attribute to shaping individual and popular beliefs? How are these beliefs maintained and who benefits from the perpetuation of particular beliefs over other beliefs? It might be interesting for you to re-visit the text with these questions in mind. Thank you.
