The simple fact that he walks into the room with a “short cigar” in his mouth gives the reader the image of a rough and tumble Drill Sergeant. Furthermore, the reference of going under the grade school where they went in case of attack gives the reader the image that Coach Hill is leading his troops into a bunker to avoid an attack. Finally, lines 18-24 describe a scene where Coach Hill “made two lines of us / facing each other” (ll. 198, 19) which is clearly a military reference. Coach Hill’s actions and intentions are clearly different from Mrs. Lawrence’s. At the beginning of the poem The Schoolroom on the Second Floor of the Knitting Mill, the reader gets sense that the narrator, a former student, misses her former teacher Mrs. Lawrence.
Whenever the pupil answered incorrectly, the teacher was instructed to throw one of the switches, starting at the lowest voltage and progressing to the higher voltages. The pupil, of course, was not actually receiving shocks, but he would act out preplanned mistakes and feign pain upon receiving the "shocks." About midway through the series of switches, the "pupil" would complain loudly that he wanted to stop, kick the wall, and scream. At the highest levels of shock the pupil would remain silent. All the while, the experimenter, wearing a white lab coat and carrying a clipboard, would instruct the teacher to continue with the "learning experiment."
So instead of getting revenge he went to Poland to see if any of his family had survived. That is where he found only five cousins alive and learned 123 close and distant relatives were killed. Alter than got married and had two of his own sons. Alter than came to the U.S. in 1960. As he did menial work, supported his family, and even attended night classes at Brooklyn College.
He only wanted them do as he said without feedback. The ways the principal handled the situation with Bender clearly demonstrated how zero tolerance can backfire on the leader. There was no empowering in his approach with this teen only distain which added to Bender’s already low self-esteem. If no one shows him how to believe in himself then why would he desire to believe in himself? Discipline is needed and there is level into which matters should be handled however by tearing him down only proved how zero tolerance without compassion is a form of discipline that is
Heid 1 Jennifer Heid Professor Harris English 1000 29, February, 2014 Final Draft Do you think there could be another event like the holocaust due to the amount of Obedience to an Authority figure? In Philip Meyers article, “If Hitler Asked You to Electrocute a Stranger, Would You?” A social psychologist named Stanly Milgram, working at Yale at the time, put his theory on obedience to the test. Milgram uses cause and effect to find his theory. Milgram uses actors to act a scene where the “ learner’ gets electrocuted by the “teacher” to show obedience to the authority figure. In addition, in Milgram’s theory of obedience, he uses “teachers,” which are the “subject” to authority.
Even though he begins to show signs of tension at 180 volts, the experimenter was able to convince Mr. Prozi to continue. In this instance, the teacher was concerned with his own culpability if something were to happen to the learner. “I mean, who’s going to take responsibility if anything happens to that gentleman?” Prozi questioned (697). After several reassurances from the experimenter that all responsibility for the learner’s well-being was on the experimenter, Mr. Prozi reluctantly continued with the shocks. Even after the learner refused to answer the questions or worse, showed no signs of a response to the questions or the shocks, Prozi continued with his orders.
Only three months after the start of trials for Adolf Eichmann (a Nazi war criminal), Milgram formulated an experiment to question this dispositional view. For many war criminals, their only logical defense was that they had just been following orders. Milgram felt that Eichmann’s and others cruel behaviour were developed from their unique situation. Milgram’s Behavioral Study of Obedience sought to question the conjecture that ordinary people could commit atrocities when they are given orders by someone in authority. The model for Milgram’s experiment was simple.
Chaz Stouffer Professor Herlihy Tuesday, March 24, 2009 Milgram Experiment Essay Milgram Experiment After WWII a major experiment was tended to for the reason to study how someone would obey orders under certain circumstances. There were many actors, interests, institutions, and events which went along with the experiment and with the war. The actors that the historical situation Milgram is responding to are: Nazis, Germans, and the Jews. The Nazis’ interests are to exterminate the Jews and to respond to their supervisors orders. The Germans’ interests are to obey Nazis orders so they would not have to be at fault for being against the laws of Hitler.
In other words, “It’s better to do evil than to be evil.” Dietrich Bonhoeffer was a German theologian important for his support of and his view of Christianity's role in a changing modern world. He was involved in a plot to overthrow the Furfur, Adolf Hitler. This led to him being put in prison and then executed. His “Letters and Papers from Prison,” published after his death in 1951, is perhaps the most philosophical document of his convictions. Bonhoeffer grew up in the University of Berlin, where his father, Karl Bonhoeffer, was a professor.
“Hitler’s concept of concentration camps as well as the practicality of genocide owed much, so he claimed, to his studies of English and United States history… and often praised to his inner circle the efficiency of America’s extermination – by starvation and uneven combat – of the red savages who could not be tamed by captivity.” The term “Final solution” was not coined by the Nazis. It was General of the US Army William Tecumseh Sherman, who plotted out the panned murder to take care of the “Indian problem.” Over 100
