, then, 
using at least two of the required readings from this week, answer the following questions:

· What stories did you grow up with? These could be from books, TV shows, movies, or another source.

· How did these stories influence your perceptions of yourself and of the world?

· Did you identify with the background of the main characters or were they from a different background than you? How did this affect you?

· As an adult, what stories do you identify with?

· How are these stories similar to and different from the ones you grew up with? How might this relate to your exposure to and understanding of diversity?

· Are there certain areas of the world or certain people about whom you only have a single story? (Think long and hard before saying that you don’t have a single story about anyone. How likely is this to be the case?)

· What role does diversity play in your workplace, social life, and/or education?
