    After reading the chapter “Project Classroom Makeover”, readers may have spotted that expert knowledge and collective knowledge, as well as crowd sourcing, were mentioned in the story, and more importantly, were being labeled as two completely different forms of knowledge acquisition that are in constant battle with each other. In fact, Cathy Davidson, the author of the story, stated how “crowd sourcing is suspicious of expertise, because the more expert we are, the more likely we are to be limited in what we even conceive to be the problem, let alone the answer” (Davidson 51). Basically, she is trying to communicate the idea that crowd sourcing is the better alternative to expertise on a given problem. Collaboration with different people and different ways of thinking generally has higher success rates to solving common problems than having one or more experts try to handle a problem that does not concern them greatly individually. The moment expertise is brought into the matter is the moment where the problem grows into something much worse than what the “problem solvers” started out with. This is largely due to this situation where people are now relying on knowledge originating from a single source as opposed to multiple sources with varying levels of credibility and useful ideas on the case at hand. In theory, this could have been more efficient in solving the problem had the expert not try to step in and take over the team, or get placed in charge and put the members of…

During his time in the camp, he was told to make a decision of forgiving a SS officer. An officer who Wiesenthal was contributing to his daily torture. Instead of verbally saying he forgave Karl, Simon implied his forgiveness by staying silent. I agree with Wiesenthal’s actions because I have relatable instances from my life that make it understandable. Such as, my parent’s divorce and…

Sexton’s poem is written about the speaker’s past self and experiences; we could assume that the speaker of the poem is actually her. The speaker is reminiscing on many of the things that she has…
