    Examples Of Post Formalism

    • 1447 Words

    My post-formalist period: Learning about history through literature and philosophy As I posited in my theory critique, post-formalism describes a process of drawing upon one’s personal experience, and combining it with knowledge acquisition in order to make sense of the world and one’s place in it. In this scenario, the teacher takes on the role of facilitator – one who is responsible for providing the opportunity to arrive at that crossroads. This is how I came to gain a more nuanced understanding of human history. My educational development was derailed by a teen pregnancy. The extent of this derailment has only recently become apparent to me, but it explains a lot about my incomplete understanding of major events in human history – their origins and causes, their consequences and contexts – and makes me feel less inadequate about the lack. It’s something that can be corrected. When using a post-formalist framework to explain one’s educational progression, the first task is to identify the personal experience that will contribute to the acquisition of knowledge and understanding. My personal experience, besides the teen pregnancy, was the typical upbringing of a working-class, white girl in America. Which is to say that, in regards to my education, I had a public school education according to the prevailing standards of 1970s America.

    If evil and irrationality are truly parts of human nature, they would be evident in society. For both Golding and Conrad, civilization seemed full of mankind’s evil. Golding commented that Lord of the Flies was his “attempt to trace the defects of society back to the defects of human nature” (Epstein 204). It is about the failure of civilization to overcome evil (Thapliyal and Kunwar 86). Civilization on the island seems to be in ruins, but the outside world is in much bigger shambles. The story…

One way the organization contributes to academic and social growth for…

    On activity 1.8 I helped my group members understand the handshake problem, which we first experimented with in a class activity. At first some of my group members wanted to just count the amount of people there were and multiply it by the amount of handshakes that each person would perform if they shook hands with every person. I realized the problem with using this method is that some handshakes would be performed twice, we wanted the amount of handshakes if each person shook hands with every…

    Horus’s story started out like Zeus’ in which they both were trying to hide and escape from death. In the beginning of the story, Set kills Horus’s father Osiris.
