After misconstruing what she believed to be a rape scene, Briony Tallis seeks justice, which has devastating consequences for her, and many other characters of Ian McEwan’s novel Atonement. The missing component of Briony’s search for justice is that she does not fully understand it. After witnessing the fountain scene, she immediately builds up a negative perception of Robbie Turner.

In 'The Handmaid's Tale', Atwood creates a very bleak future for the human race, portraying a world destroyed by corrupted morals in which women have had all of their rights removed. One of the fundamental ways that Atwood constructs the dystopia is by showing the manipulability of human nature.

The way that Offred refers to her bedroom as "mine" shows how despite her attempts to rebel against the system, society stands no chance against the Gilead republic. The citizens' morals are becoming more re-shaped all the time, painting a very bleak future for the next generation as before long there will nobody to fight against the government oppression.

a boy may not cook dinner even though they observe their mother carrying out this behaviour). Support for social influences on gender roles comes from Bandura’s bobo doll study. The study involves an adult model influencing a child’s behaviour which supports the modelling aspect of SLT. On the other hand, Bussey et al found that the influence of modelling on children and the development of their gender roles is limited by existing stereotypes. Bussey came to this conclusion when he found that children imitate same sex models but do not imitate same sex models that are gender inappropriate.
Even though Neil Postman’s book, The End of Education, was written well before MOOCs were available it is still evident what his opinions on them would be. Postman is not as enthusiastic concerning technology’s place in education as Friedman is. Neil Postman and Thomas Friedman agree that there are some things that can’t be taught outside of a traditional classroom, but they disagree on the roll that technology should play on education. Postman dispute that society should restrain from seeking a substitute to traditional classrooms for societal standard and proper behaviors can’t be taught in a virtual setting. According to Postman (Postman), technology challenges the tradition that children should play on education.
Child science refers to the explanatory ideas of natural phenomena that children construct for themselves. 1.3 Children do not arrive at our science lessons with empty minds. They have often already constructed their own interpretative ideas regarding natural phenomena. These ideas may be incorrect, but they seem entirely logical and sensible to the child; in other words, children have their own personal child science. If the meanings and ideas that a child has constructed for himself or herself are incorrect, any new information that is linked thereto is also likely to be wrong, or to be wrongly applied (Gega 1994:42).
