When I first started watching this video I didnít understand what Lisa Espinoza meant by self representation. At the end I totally got it. One of her students was explaining her picture and said people had a perception that Pilsen was full of bad teenagers. That she wanted to represent what they were really like.

I liked how Lisa Espinoza used stereotypes about Native Americans, Lantinos, and African Americans to show the misconceptions that society has about these cultures. I liked how she had her students tell her what they knew about Native Americans showing that they were also using stereotypes without saying it.

I like the use of a double entry journal and the note cards where students pick a quote and make a connection. Making connections to literature is a valuable part of teaching, if not the most valuable. I will definitely use this strategy. I like how this helps with reading comprehension, sentence structure by writing down sentences, and vocabulary. I also like how this teaches students to form an opinion and then support it with text. This is a strategy that I use that is important for learning in any subject area.
