I’m not sure what I should discuss on this page, because I could not see the guideline yet, but I will talk about my group work.
We did The Circle by Dave Egger. This book has a lot of good points to think and talk about. We divided writers that we had learned, but later, we basically gathered all the ideas about any work that we know well. Personally, I didn’t expect everyone to give speech because I thought people would want to do only by like 2 people for fluency. That’s why our team chose to give speech by 3 people because other members were more comfortable at speech. But it turned out that I should have done also!
Anyway we met 1 hour earlier that the class for 2 weeks to discuss ideas. Because we had enough good points already, we could gather ideas fast and easily. It was mostly the Journey narrative, because the main character starts a new job and comes into a huge company, and she changes. And another important point is the difference between reality and appearance as Frederick Douglass says those two can be different. My true self and my online-self is totally different. Even though there is a clear transparency, this doesn’t mean that we can see a person’s real self. For example, if they put cameras everywhere, people already know that they are being watched and conscious about it. So their acts can be different.
There points, and this book itself are really good because it shows how people are doing these days. How people accept big company’s ideas-almost like ideology- and there are two selves-real self and online-self.
Reading a book and discuss about it was a good experience. A little bit challenging to me, but it was great!!! I just wish I could prepare more. Thanks for great time for everyone!
