“Evil always has a top hat and a cape, and goodness is over there in the corner.”

- Toni Morrison

Explanation:

 

  • What does the quotation mean?

  • What thoughts or feelings are being expressed?

 

Evaluation:

  • What is the significance of the quotation?

  • To what extent do you agree with its claims?

 

Application:

  • How do these ideas connect to your recent studies?

  • ​How are these ideas relevant in your life or today's world?

After you have posted your journal to the comments section below, you will read through your classmates' entries next week and respond to two in no more than 150 words.  In your responses, try to push the conversation forward by bringing in new thoughts, ideas, and questions that were stimulated by your classmates' insights and observations.
