"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?
