Question Detail

Has anyone used the episode from the Iconoclast series that shows a discussion between Dave Chapelle and Maya Angelou? I feel like there are some good opportunities for language arts lessons on speaking and listening in this video. I don't know if I'll be able to show all of his comedy clips to 8th grade, but will at least use some of the discussion clips. I'm trying to develop a student centered discussion around it. Maybe add a video clip of the TV show Black-ish; the episode on "The Word" shows different sides to that argument. Anyone have ideas to help build a solid lesson?
