Based on your own experience, can you identify how pop culture affects your learning?

Pop culture is a term used to describe cultural artifacts and famous works that are part of everyday life. Umberto Eco coined the term in his book The Name of the Rose, which includes an essay on pop culture titled “The End of Mimesis.”

We must acknowledge this simple fact to understand how media influences our lives or interactions with others. Our attitudes toward education must change to move forward in our teaching practices.

It was 2008, the year that The Hunger Games came out in theaters across America, and it sparked a fire within me that would eventually lead to my decision to become a teacher. At the time, I was attending Michigan State University Montessori High School(MSU), and classes were about over for the semester. The school had recently purchased a new copy machine that we still needed to use due to its lack of sturdy paper feeders.
