June 10: Chapter 1 Reflections

Filed under: I am Mordred — Tags: , , — Buffy J. Hamilton @ 12:26 pm

In Chapter 1, Mordred discusses his state of happiness before he learned his true identity and his status as a “bad seed.” As we move forward with our reading of the novel, we will learn how this label profoundly shapes Mordred’s view of himself and of life in general.

In today’s society, people are often labeled at any early age, particularly by parents, peers, and even school officials. Whether the label is a positive one or negative one, consider these questions:

• Do these labels become “self-fulfilling prophecies” that either limit or expand how a person views himself/herself and what they can achieve/do in life? Why or why not? Explain.

• If the label is a negative one, such as Mordred being called a “bad seed” can a person can overcome this perception and create a life that is productive and positive? Why or why not?

In a paragraph for each question, explain your ideas. In other words, you should have two well developed paragraphs. Support your ideas with examples and detailed explanation. Try to write in complete sentences and follow rules of standard American English.
