    • Prudence - good judgment, common sense

    Preparation for Socratic Seminar

    Clip from The Great Gatsby (34:09-1:05)

    Hypothetical Scenario

    Watch TED Talk: Does Money Make You Mean?

    Annotate Transcript – especially with QUESTIONS it generates for you.

    Preparation for Socratic Seminar Friday:

    Create open-ended discussion questions based on The Great Gatsby and the TED Talk.

    HW: Prepare for the Socratic Seminar on Friday. Review Questions by Table

    3 20 21 happy spring

    • Scenario

    • Nathan's father is a high-ranking executive at a multi-billion dollar company that makes electronics gadgets.

    • Recently, the gadgets were credited with helping revolutionaries take back democratic control from a military dictatorship in the middle east. The gadgets were the main source of communication between rebel fighters.

    • Nathan's father's annual salary is 2 million dollars, plus bonuses.

    • The manufacturing plants that make the gadgets are located in one country in Southeast Asia.

    • The plants have a very poor track record in terms of worker's rights, health care, and pay.

    • The waste from the plant has long polluted the local water supply.

    • The company has done little more than make empty promises about fixing the situation.

    • None of its workers have health insurance.

    • Average pay for employees is less than $1 per day.

    • Safety standards are minimal.

    • There are many accidents each month.

    • Workers who are too injured to continue doing their job are fired.

    • Nathan graduates from an elite college. College is paid for by his father, in full.

    • Nathan joins the Peace Corps to work overseas with less privileged populations.

    • Nathan's assignment places him in a town where most of the people work for his father's company.

    • Nathan's assignment is to help build a school and a safe water source for the town.

    • Nathan does the work and completes his time with the Peace Corps; he comes home.

    • Nathan's father offers Nathan a very high-paying job at the company.

    3 20 21 happy spring

    Hypothetical: If Nathan MUST follow the advice of ONE of these friends, which friend's advice do you think makes more sense?

    Friend #1

    This friend says that his dad's job offer is just to buy off Nathan's guilt about working for a company that doesn’t consciously “give back” to the world – that it is blood money. This friend tells Nathan to refuse the job and the money.

    Friend #2

    This friend tells Nathan that he can help change the company from within – that he should take the job and work to change the culture of the company, even if the process takes him years and years to accomplish.

    Friend #3

    This friend tells Nathan it is his moral obligation to undermine the success of his dad's company; that he should take the job and work from within to expose its corruption and undermine its profits, even if he has to break the law to do so.

    Explain your answer by providing 5 specific and compelling reasonsthis advice is more solid than the advice of the other friends.

    Beliefs about wealth
    Beliefs About Wealth

    Slide your notebook to the person on your left:

    Look at your choice and reasons from the above activity; what do you assume to be his/her main BELIEF about wealth?

    Write down your thoughts below the activity responses.

    Discuss. Is your peer’s assumption accurate?

    Happy friday

    Periods 1, 2, 3 Lesson Plan

    We will NOT have a socratic seminar today as originally planned since there are so many people missing AND now I am sick! We will do the socratic when we return from break.

    Each table should compare their responses with the class to the Chapter 4 and Chapter 5 Review Activity. Give everyone time to write the responses in their notebooks as each table shares.

    Periods 5 & 6 Lesson Plan

    Please have students read and annotate the speech titled “Knotty Ties”.

    Read it together first as a class, then they should work together to annotate the structure and the rhetorical devices in the text.

    Happy Friday!

    Socratic seminar

    Purpose: Achieve a deeper understanding about the ideas and values in a text.

    Background: Based on a systemic way of using questioning to delve deeply into a subject,

    participants carry the burden of responsibility for the quality of the discussion.

    The best discussions occur when participants study the text (The Great Gatsby, TED Talk) or prepare in advance, using evidence to support their ideas.

    Discussion is not about “right answers”; it is not a debate. Students are encouraged to think out loud to exchange ideas openly while examining ideas in a rigorous, thoughtful manner.

    Assessment will be based on:

    - the quality of your group discussion as a whole

    - the equitable participation of all members

    40 points possible:

    -20 “group think”

    - 20 “equitable participation”

    In other words… this is not a competition against each other to see who can say the most. It is about how you work together to develop a thoughtful, collective, elevated understanding of your thinking about the effect of money in society.

    Socratic Seminar

    Socratic seminar1

    Purpose: Achieve a deeper understanding about the ideas and values in a text.

    Questions to discuss:

    What is Fitzgerald implying about the effect of money on people’s lives?

    What does Fitzgerald suggest about how individuals are affected by their own as well as society’s beliefs about money?

    What role does/should significant wealth play in a person’s life?

    Be Dr. Phil. Consider how each person in the Daisy, Gatsby, Tom love triangle behaves during chapter 7. How does Daisy feel about Gatsby? How does he feel about her? How does Tom feel about Daisy? Write down key quotes to help organize your thinking about the love triangle that exists. What is your professional opinion on the status of the relationships?

    Consider the fight between Tom and Gatsby: What do these men think of each other? How are Tom and Gatsby similar?

    How does Nick feel about turning 30? Why might he be feeling this way?

    Be the officer at the scene of the accident. What happened?

    What is Gatsby “missing” about the status of his relationship with Daisy as he waits, pointlessly, in the bushes to be sure she is safe from Tom? How is this like other times in the novel when he has been clueless in terms of some aspect of reality?
