One of the charges in the affidavit written by Meletus against Socrates is that he is an evil doer "corrupting the youth" (Grube). Another charge brought against Socrates is that he is making up new Gods and disregarding the old Gods the Athenians believe in (Grube). Socrates starts his defense by addressing the jury and telling them that his accusers had a prepared speech, while Socrates' speech will be completely improvised (Perel). Socrates continued to further disassociate himself from the opponents by telling the jury to forgive him for his conversational tone in his speech, for that is how he best speaks (Perel). Socrates asked the jury to focus on the substance of his defense, not how his defense is delivered.
Instead of focusing more on teaching his Socratic Method, also known as dialectics, to the adults who didn’t really care to much about them, he decided to teach younger children because they were willing to learn and their minds were still open to learning and he really enjoyed teaching them. Socrates, being a teacher to the young, they looked up to him and did what they were told. So at that time, one of his students went to Sparta where he advised the Spartans during the war. In people’s minds, they thought of that to be an act of betrayal and Socrates was responsible for the student’s actions. Unfortunately, many Athenians found Socrates to be a threat to them due to some events that occurred during the time.

Socrates was genuinely worried about why the young men were so disappointing. Socrates' young students had been a particular disappointment to him. If Socrates could figure out exactly how the fathers had failed to properly educate their sons, he could save the city and restore Athens to its former glory. Socrates’ interesting idea was that human excellence was really a kind of knowledge. Sophists were skilled in elaborate argumentation; were they would try and make the argument they were focusing on the stronger side, even if it was wrong or weaker.
Why Socrates Refuse of Escape from Prison? Philosophical viewpoints can be problematic. This ancient Greek philosopher conviction to die was an inexcusable waste of an invaluable thinker for the humanity; and those feeling get even worse when I realize, as per ones understanding, he was a victim of such unfair incomprehensible circumstances. Therefore, throughout the portrait of his friends, colleges and students, Socrates leaves societies a great contribution to the field of ethics, political, civil, moral, and so on. To be able survive the pass of the times and even contribute to society thought the memories of other, Socrates –and any other that may accomplish this, I should say- have to be an outstanding human being.
Fester was very aggressive in his approach to solve problems; he was willing to do whatever it took to make his point. He didn’t cater to the expression of the other team members, which made others in the team think of him as an individualist and not a team player. Dr. Jerrold, the project head, brought Knowlton and Fester together after he thought he had Knowlton’s support. Bob Knowlton’s problem was his communication skills because he was not able to acknowledge his opinions, feelings, and conflicts with Fester, Jerrold, and his teammates. One could tell Fester’s presence changed this because before Fester joined the team; Knowlton often shared his feelings with Jerrold because they had an open relationship.
Socrates attempted to open the eyes of all around him, the children because ultimately they are the future and have not been completely brainwashed by society, and the jurors and jailers for their own ultimate gain. He tried to prove that what the jurors and leaders of society considered wrong
The Socratic Method is a relevant and effective method of teaching because it develops one’s self-knowledge, has demonstrated its effectiveness in today’s education system, and it teaches the valuable lesson of humility. Many people in Socrates’ time felt hatred towards him because of his method of teaching. They did not like how he was constantly pointing out their ignorance and what they believed was a lack of knowledge. The people of his time became so angry with his teachings that Socrates was executed for his methods of inquiry. He was willing to die for what he believed in rather than give it up.
Here are just a few analyses that we learned in class: Coach Boone was a great leader from the sense that he brought the team together and created such a strong bond between all the players, but he also failed in other aspects of leadership. He was more focused on his personal success rather than that of the teams. He could often be heard speaking of just himself rather than of the team as a unit. Coach Yoast was a very selfless leader to this team. He could have taken the opportunity to leave his team and coach a different team the next year, but he loyally stuck by his players that he had coached for years on end.
Mr Han starts helping Dre defend him against the bullies who are making his life miserable by teaching him kung Fu. We watch Dre become a confident, respectful and well-toned athlete. I liked dres character because he seems like he would be a good role model for young teens because he never gives up and throughout the film he was himself and he didn’t try to change himself to make people like him. A lot of teens these days worry about what they look like or what they say so they try to change who they are instead of being who they really are. The most important theme shown in this film is to never give up.
