Homework Humanities Monday
Read 249-275 in Feed.
Answer the following two questions, responding as comments to this post (due tomorrow, Tuesday):
1. On pages 252-255 Titus shuts out Violet. Why is he behaving in this manner?¬† Read Titus’ “rant” on page 271 that starts with “No-I can’t field this” and ends with “You know? You know?” Why is he saying these heartless things when he knows Violet is dying?
2. On pages 272-273 Violet gets angry. Reread the part at the bottom of 272 that starts with “Do you know why the Global Alliance…(and ends with) That’s our way.” Which aspects of what she says are somewhat true today? What seems to be the tone in her voice? What do you think she believes youth should do? What do you think is the responsibility of youth regarding these issues?
Remember to come with your list from the Myths of Globalization
