Individual Task

“All My Sons” is the title of the play you are about to read1. Arthur Miller wanted his play to have universal appeal. Even though you do not know the story yet, can you imagine how this title might connect with a message that has universal significance? In other words, “whose sons” might be “all my sons”?

Answer the following questions on your own. Then share what you have written with the members of your group.

  • How would you define a responsible person?
  • Are you a responsible person? Why or why not? Give examples of people you know in your personal life or in the public domain who are responsible. How do these individuals support your definition?
  • How does one learn to become a responsible person?
    Who are the “teachers” and where do we find them in our lives?
  • Is being responsible a character trait that you value a lot?
    Why or why not?
  • The Golden Rule is “Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.” What does this statement mean? Can you think of a situation in your own life in which you used this statement as the guiding principle for the action that you took? If “yes,” explain.

Prepare a post in your blog with both tasks.
