help me learn.
discussion 1 :
- Aimee Mullins is a groundbreaking runner who reminds us that “disabled” does not mean “useless”. She sees herself as strong and powerful and recognizes adversity is part of everyone’s life. Watch her presentation “The Opportunity of Adversity” and react to how she describes disability or adversity. How do you view “disability” now that the course is at its conclusion ? Is it just another way to look at “different”? Are we all useful?
discussion 2 :
- Go to Chapter 8 Video and Interactive Resources of your eText, “On the Screen: Temple Grandin” and learn about this fascinating woman who thinks in pictures. View the clip and react to the voice of someone within the spectrum. On the same page, read “A Mother’s Perspective” and “A Sister’s Perspective”. Read how their concerns, joys, etc. React to these readings.
- Finally, join these two worlds. What have you learned?
