Today, as we prepared to fill out the D&C Frame with textual evidence from the various websites and texts provided to you in the Flowers for Algernon Supplemental Reading packet, we discussed the different between multiple perspectives, ethics, and judgment. Many of you brought forth great insight into this discussion! Thank you for participating! We looked at the differences through the example of the mental health patient (to prepare for Flowers for Algernon) and in the metaphor elaborated in class about the lawyers, suspect, law, and the judge. I hope that through those two illustrations, you were able to understand the difference between multiple perspectives, ethics, and judgment. If not, it's okay. You will still have a lot of time to learn, but by the end of the year, you'll totally understand it. I have included the diagram and information discussed in class in the figure below.
By Thursday, September 22nd, please be sure to finish the entire packet. It must be done before you walk into class! If you forgot what tasks you were to complete, I've included them below:
-- Annotate ALL the articles in the packet (using the Steps #1-5 on your yellow resource page)
-- Finish the D&C Frame (color-coded by source and every single piece of information should be textual evidence taken from the articles or links provided)
-- Complete page 17 by attaching your notes from the online sources A, B, or C, or your own research, and complete page 16 by conducting your own research about Daniel Keyes and adding some more significant details about the author and the origins of the story, Flowers for Algernon
-- Complete the Station Rotation activity (answering three questions in the margins) for Document "D" -- The three questions are as follows:
1. Do you believe intelligence is static or dynamic? static - stays the same// dynamic - changes
2. What is YOUR definition of intelligence?
3. In your opinion, how is intelligence similar or different from mindset?
Have a wonderful day of learning! Be sure to study for your WPW test on Wednesday!
