All Boys, All Blogged: January 24, 2013

Focus: Can a good person commit an evil deed and still be a good person?

Laptop Carts of C-9, Part II: A Story of Redemption...Or Is It?

1. Warm-up: Defining "good person," "evil," and "conscience" on the blog; turning in word traces.

2. Acting out Act 2, scenes 2 and 3: Using your sticky notes or your notes, please take charge of the following:

If your card is a heart...please mark any lines that a show the goodness and/or guilt in a character's heart

If your card is a diamond..please mark and analyze the use of sounds in these scenes.  These can be actual sounds in the stage directions and also sounds referenced in characters' speeches.

If your card is a club...please keep track of all references to nature (weather, birds, water, etc) and consider how nature reflects what's happening onstage.

If your card is a spade...please keep track of all references to fear.  What does each character fear, and how does this fear affect him or her?

  2. A good person is someone who thinks of others before themselves. Evil is when all lost is good in somebody. A conscience is what tells us what to do in order to be good but if don't listen to it we can become evil.

  3. A good person is someone who is doing the right things and helping others. Evil is doing something wrong or something that you should not have done. Conscience is making the right choice and not doing the wrong thing, but doing the right thing.

  4. A good person is one who goes out of their way to help others and make their life better. Evil is a characteristic of a person who is selfish, hurts others, and does bad things to others without making up for it in a good way. Conscience is the voice in our heads and the feeling in our gut that weighs us down when we know we are doing something wrong.

  5. A good person is someone who goes out of there way to do a good deed without expecting anything in return.
    Evil is being morally unbounded.
    A conscience is a voice inside of you that tells you right from wrong.

  6. a good person to me means he is doing more for others than himself. It means that when times are tough he still finds the courage and moxy to help others out. i think good people try to do what is right when people are looking and when they are not.

  7. A good person is somebody who does not do bad deeds. A good person always remains true to themselves and others. Evil is what makes a good person go bad. Evil is a force that always occurs in the world, its just a matter of who can resist it. Conscience is the inner voice inside of someone that causes him or her to choose between good and evil.

    I believe a good person is someone who does selfless acts of kindness or tries to better the community or world for the good of the people. Evil is what somebody commits when they have the intention of harming or causing misfortune to others. Conscience is what someone has when they need to make a big decision. It's the little people standing on our shoulders telling us what type of decision we're making and what affect it might have.

  10. A good person isn't someone who doesn't do anything good but they don't do anything bad. An evil person is someone who does something harmful to another living being.

  11. A Good person a Is person that helps other people for their needs and not his. Evil is anything that causes pain, it can be mentally or physicality. A conscience is the think that makes you think before you do. It can be good or evil depending on he person.

  12. A good person is a person who does good to help somebody or helps a situation with the intent or desire to do good. Evil is this dark thing that every person is capable of and its a dark action that a person does that either causes fear or is dangerous and causes harm to people. If I were to define conscience I would define it as the good or the thought of good in a person.

  13. A good person can be defined as someone that is doing good things and never has thought of doing bad. They are nice to everyone and always obey the rules. They also care for others and will help others when they are in need.

    A bad person is selfish and doesnt care for others. They are rude and dont try to be good. Some levels of bad can be commiting crimes.

    I think a concience is when something bad or good stays in your head and it may change you.

  14. The definition of a good person is someone who does the right thing and they treat people the same way they want to be treated. The definition of evil is something that causes a person or animal or anything harm (physical or mental) and enjoys it. A conscience tells a person between doing the right thing and doing the wrong thing.

  15. A good person is someone who cares about everything and doesn't give up. There always there for friends and family no mater what its, even if they cant help.

    Evil could be as simple as doing something that will affect others in a bad way.

    Conscience is your second voice that you need to listen to because it detemines your mood

  16. A good person is a person who does good things and who is charismatic. They are a person who you want to be around because of the things they do.

    Evil is the idea of badness. Everything that is powerfully bad is also evil.

    Conscience is the part of a person's thoughts that prevents them from being evil. It also tries to drive them toward being a good person.

  17. A "good" person in my eyes is someone who is constantly making the right decision and helping others for the pleasure of good doing and not for they eyes of society. When there is good there has to be evil. Evil is based solely through satan and the actions he commits, causing harm to innocent people around the world. Conscience is the voice in everyone's head telling them when to do something or say something and when no too.

  18. A good person is someone who tries to make someones life better and evil can be doing something that will make another persons life better

  20. I believe that a good person is defined by the selfless acts that they commit. An evil person is someone that is defined by there selfishness acts, Also a conscience is what makes you think the way you do and how you react to a situation

  21. The difference between good and evil lies deep within their souls. The difference is in the conscience. The part of the person that cannot be changed by time or by the outside world. If a person is truly evil there conscience will also be evil.

  22. A good person is someone who tries to make the good decision most of the time but in the past might have done wrong but try to always and do right even in a a bad situation. A bad person is someone who does bad even when given a choice between good and bad. The bad choices may not be as bad as murder but may lead them down that path. A conscience is something in your brain that helps you make the right choices and guides you throughout the day

  23. A good person will do something good most of the time. An evil person will stab you in the back and cross you and treat you horribly and do bad things. A conscience is when you are making a decision your
    "mind" will tell you what choice is better.

  24. A good person is someone who does selfless acts of kindness every day without expecting anything in return.
    An evil person is someone who has lost all morals and cares only about themselves.

  26. A good person is someone who dosent do anything to hurt somebody emotional or physical. Also a person who goes out of there way to do something nice for someone else.

    Evil is when there is no good and it takes over and makes someone bad.

    Conscience is the thing inside you that prevents you from doing bad.

  27. A good person is a person who strives to do the best thing most of the time. They also expect nothing in return. Evil is a dark force or feeling that makes you do selfish acts like theft. Conscience is the little voice in your head that tells you right from wrong.

  29. There are many "good people", and all of them have commited a "bad" deed. The degree of what s/he did will vary but no one is perfect. A good person can do a number of things and still be considered a good person. Then there are some things that a person can do, such as robbing, to where they might be considered not a good person, and in extreme cases, like murder, some might even say that they are a bad person. But we all start out as good people. Your conscience is the thing that keeps you on the good side.
