Today we sent Charlie Gordon off with notes of advice for his uncertain future.
The day started with a recap of the story “Flowers for Algernon” through the viewing of a fan-made trailer.
We then worked to compare this story to that within Divergent by Veronica Roth by watching the trailer for its feature film.
In continuing the discussion we took time to read several articles concerning genetics and intelligence:
- “Luiz Attributes Free Kick Technique to Genetics”
- “You Don’t Have to be Smart to be Rich, Study Finds.”
After a brief discussion on all of the preceding media, the students will watch the video “Zoos Use Science, Genetics to Preserve Wildlife.”
- Read for 30 minutes and have a great weekend!
