Group Discussion

Courage

Opening

With the help of your teacher, form groups of three.

Think about the characters and situations you have read about in this unit: Antigone in Antigone ; Henry David Thoreau, writer of “On the Duty of Civil Disobedience”; and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., author of “Letter from a Birmingham Jail.”

Discuss the relative courage of each of the three in your small groups and then with the whole class.

  • How would you rate each of them in terms of the following character traits: bravery, virtue, honor, and self-sacrifice?
