6 Minute Video Lesson

Who in our community has the power to influence our decision making? To what extent are our decisions our own or made to please others? This folktale from Persia discusses the lengths we go through to please others, even compromising our better judgement. Nasruddin, aka Hodja, is the primary character of popular folktales told all along the silk road. "Nasruddin, his son and their donkey" asks us to consider the weight of the voices of others and we consider the "right way".

This is a complete micro lesson on Social Emotional Development through the ethical lens of the Four Awesome Questions: Is it True?, Is it Fair? Will it Build Community and Better Friendship? Will it be Helpful to those Involved? Following the story, selected discussion questions are presented to engage critical thinking and authentic discussion.
