Statement/ Reaction Sheet
Moral/Ethical Dilemmas

There are two shipwrecked sailors, A and B. They both see a plank that can only support one of them and both of them swim towards it. Sailor A gets to the plank first.
Sailor B, who is going to drown, pushes A off and away from the plank and, thus, ultimately, causes A to drown. Sailor B gets on the plank and is later saved by a rescue team. Can sailor B be tried for murder? Or did B act in self-defense?
The Trolley Problem
A) Although it would be unpleasant, I would decide to throw the switch. Yes, my action directly causes the death of a single person, but the mathematics of the situation dictate, in my head, that I throw the switch.
B) The controversy mainly revolves around if a person has more of an obligation just by being present at the scene. Does such a thing as a 'good Samaritan law' exist? Also, the people tied to the tracks could be horrible human beings. Does that change things?

C) If a person kills someone else, but it's for the greater good, is that action justified?
A pregnant woman leading a group of people out of a cave on a coast is stuck in the mouth of that cave. In a short time high tide will be upon them, and unless she is unstuck, they will all be drowned except the woman, whose head is out of the cave. Fortunately, (or unfortunately,) someone has with him a stick of dynamite. There seems no way to get the pregnant woman loose without using the dynamite which will inevitably kill her; but if they do not use it everyone will drown. What should they do?

Example of Argument- Logos
As student for more than 20 years, I feel that students do not understand the importance of homework and how it helps in the future. Students tend to turn in only 45% of their assigned homework. While it may not be the most exciting thing a person does during the day, I believe that homework is important. As a teacher, I feel that homework helps students to have a deeper understanding of the content that I have taught that day. Because of my background, I hope you will have a better appreciation and respect for homework.

Writing Prompt
What does this photo say to you? What are the symbols in it and what do they represent?
In groups, answer the following questions in the margins.
Chunk 1 - Who is MLK's audience? What's his purpose in writing?
Chunk 2 - Highlight/mark MLK's concessions (the other person's opinion) and refutations (why they are wrong) in diff. colors. What is the purpose of direct action?
Chunk 3 - What was the Supreme Court's decision of 1954?
Chunk 4 - Does MLK appeal to ethos, logos, or pathos here? How?
Chunk 5 - Highlight/mark the examples MLK gives of civil disobedience.
Chunk 6 - Explain how MLK uses Cause and Effect in this chunk.
Chunk 7 - MLK uses tons of allusions, especially in this chunk. What are they and why does MLK use THESE allusions for his audience?
Chunk 8 - What is the imagery that MLK uses?
Pick one photo, identify the injustice, then explain how it relates to the article.
At least one paragraph and one quote from the text.
LOOK beyond the picture. Look at the colors used, the background images, and the main images.
HW: Find an artwork/photo that depicts injustice or bias. Print it out and on the back, explain what the injustice is and how the artwork uses colors, background images, and main images to portray the injustice.
Example: Photo 1 shows an African American man with a microphone at his feet. The man's bare feet could represent the injustices of slavery, while the microphone gives the image of a modern context. The microphone, placed at his feet, could symbolize the voice of African Americans. I interpret the microphone as African Americans having to struggle for a voice. Before the MLK movement, African Americans were treated unfairly, and this photo depicts that injustice. Solzhenitsyn explained in his article that art can show the injustice within the world and can help"vanquish lies." Today, African American celebrities, such as Jay-Z, are able to voice their opinions through different art forms, including rapping/singing.

Why are Eric and Sheila disturbed by their parents? What is Priestley getting at?
What does the ending mean? pg 67
Writing Prompt!
Summarize the play so far.
Who is the most to blame at this point?
So who is the Inspector?
1. The Inspector is a supernatural being (ghost, God, spirit, time traveler) who has knowledge of the events and has come to force those responsible to acknowledge their part. Perhaps this lesson could help avoid the awful wars in the near future. This also allows Priestley to give the play an extra bit of drama and a classic Ghost Story ending.
2. The Inspector is not a ghost; he's merely a dramatic device. JB Priestley was a Socialist with strongly-held political views. The play is as much a lesson as a piece of entertainment - the Inspector as a character exists ONLY to reveal the terrible crimes of each of the other characters and how their individual moral failings (small on their own) have all played their part in the death of Eva Smith. Once the characters confess, he (the device) is no longer needed and leaves, never to be seen again.
Decide which characters symbolize each deadly sin.
Locate a line from the play illustrating that character performing that sin.
Who is the Inspector?
What do you think about the inspector? Who is he?
A Ghost? The characters' own subconscious? Other Thoughts?
Go through Act 1 or 2 and find moments where the Inspector seems to know more than he should. Find lines that could support the idea that the Inspector is the time traveler.
Example: pg 27
Dig Deeper
3. Priestley's Theory of Time
Time 1: Ordinary, everyday linear time
Time 2: 'Dreamtime' in which you can wander through Time 1,seeing the future and past.
Time 3: an alternative, branching, and sideways time. In this dimension, a person can alter events and change the world. Only certain people have the gift of entering Time 3.
Priestley genuinely believed a theory of time by J.W. Dunne:
Time exists in three dimensions:
wrath, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy & gluttony
Socialism in AIC!
Socialism is the belief that everyone is equal and there should be no class system. Instead of three classes there should only be one and each person contributes to the wealth of all.

Priestley believed in Socialism fully.

Which character is opposed to socialism and which one is for it? How do you know?
