WOW 2-1

READ: Cesar Chavez once said, “Non-violence is not inaction. It is not discussion. It is not for the timid or weak. Nonviolence is hard work. It is the willingness to sacrifice. It is the patience to win.”

THINK: What does this quote mean? Do you agree with it or not? How does this quote apply to life today? How is it relevant to you or your life? How can this quote be applied in school dealing with bullying behavior?

WRITE: Write about a time when you handled a situation in a non-violent way. What happened? How did others react to your behavior? What lesson was learned through your actions?

READ: Gail Sheehy once said, “If we don’t change, we don’t grow. If we don’t grow, we aren’t really living.”

THINK: What does this quote mean? Do you agree with her or not? How does it apply to things you have read about, seen on TV or in movies, or your personal life?

WRITE: Change is inevitable. Write about why change is important. What happens when we resist change?

READ: Dale Carnegie stated, “Do the thing you fear to do and keep on doing it…that is the quickest and surest way ever yet discovered to conquer fear.” Similarly, Les Brown suggests, “When you face your fear, most of the time you will discover that it was not really such a big threat after all. We all need some form of deeply rooted, powerful motivation—it empowers us to overcome obstacles so we can live our dreams.”

THINK: Which quote relates to a personal experience with fear? What happened?

WRITE: Write about a time that you had to deal with one of your fears. What did you learn about your fear?

READ: Babies are naturally born with two fears. A fear of falling and a fear of loud noises. All other fears are learned by association and identification. A baby is born with certain reflexes, like fight or flight. Another of these inborn reflexes are startle reflexes. When hearing a loud noise, a baby tends to make a jerking movement. And when a baby gets a sensation from falling, he/she tends to gasp for air. (And no….don’t try this at home.) These reflexes are unconscious, but are soon connected to “fear” as babies become older.

THINK: Consider the following quotes related to fear. Dale Carnegie stated, “Do the thing you fear to do and keep on doing it…that is the quickest and surest way ever yet discovered to conquer fear.” Similarly, Les Brown suggests, “When you face your fear, most of the time you will discover that it was not really such a big threat after all. We all need some form of deeply rooted, powerful motivation—it empowers us to overcome obstacles so we can live our dreams.”

What do these quotes mean? Do you agree with them or not? Why?

WRITE: Write about what fears you have. Have you been able to overcome them? How? If not, why not?

  • READ: “Cassandra took another step forward. ‘You’re afraid! Tell me about your fear, Blake.’” (Shusterman89). Cassandra has invited you to her amusement park. After reading several chapters of Shusterman’sFull Tilt, you know that the characters enter a world where they are forced to face their fears. These fears are manifested in the rides that those who enter the park must endure.

  • THINK: We learn from Blake and what he goes through in the novel that our experiences make us who we are and that our fears often stem from not facing experiences head on… When we finally do face our fears, we can overcome them just like Blake does by the end of the novel.

  • WRITE: Let Cassandra into your mind to see your biggest fear. Write about a ride that Cassandra would design based on that fear…what will it look like? What twists and turns will it contain? Who will ride with you? Will you get off the ride? How will it end?

  • READ: Frederick Keonig states, “We tend to forget that happiness doesn’t come as a result of getting something we don’t have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.”

  • THINK: What does Keonig’s statement mean to you? Do you agree with him or not? How does this quote relate to giving to others and being charitable?

  • WRITE: Write about a time when you have given something to someone less fortunate. How does it make you feel to do so? How do you think the recipient feels in that situation?

  • READ: Rod Serling wrote, “There are weapons that are simply thoughts, attitudes, prejudices—to be found only in the minds of men. For the record, prejudices can kill and suspicion can destroy. A thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has a fallout all its own for the children…and the children yet unborn, and the pity of it is…that these things cannot be confine to…The Twilight Zone!”

  • THINK: What do Serling’s words mean in relation to our world today? Do you agree with them or not? Why?

  • WRITE: Write about how prejudice affects society. Is prejudice something that can be overcome or stopped? If so, how? If not, why?
