"The Promise" discussion
Something to Think About
- We've got some help from science that reinforces why the panic myth is inaccurate.
- If we have time, I want you to freewrite during the remainder of the class about how it helps inform "The Promise" and/or the Panic article.
- How does this help us cultivate our sociological imagination?
- How does this perspective compare or contrast with the general consensus about people's behavior in crisis?
