in the
Year 11 English classroom Findings View – Themes
Cluster – B Topic – Jealousy
4 participants, 6 notes

The initial idea by Student A
“Mark was lured away from Eduardo by Sean but it was not just Sean who destroyed their friendship as Mark was already jealous of Eduardo being invited to the phoenix club so in a way the friendship was bound to fail under the pressure of facebook, Sean Parker and the Phoenix Club.
Notes Continues Note 2 Student B:
“It was fair for the friendship to fail because it was very one-sided. Mark is naive and couldn't understand that the relationship was an imperative part in the creation and the sustaining of the website (facebook). .. This is why Mark was so easily played right into the control of Sean (power, status crazy moron) who had always planned to use Mark as a stepping stone to get to the top of business world => he is a man of great vision and terrible morality.
Note 3 student 1 -builds on note 2
“He continues down this road by diluting Eduardo's shares in facebook( also courtesy of Sean.)This proved the end of their friendship as Eduardo sues Mark for all his lost shares."
Notes Continued... Note 5, student D
“Mark's friendship is ruined because of Mark being very ambitious. Mark is willing to buy away his friendship with Eduardo in order to succeed with facebook

Note 6 - student A, built on note 5
His ambition is clearly shown when he is arguing with his girlfriend Erica over finals club and the audience gets the feeling he will do anything to get into one including destroying his friendship with Eduardo
