DO NOW 4/15/20
Is your conscience made up of what you truly consider to be good and bad or is your conscience a projection of what society has dictated to you is right and wrong? in Google Classroom

DO NOW 4/15/20 Is your conscience made up of what you truly consider to be good and bad or is your conscience a projection of what society has dictated to you is right and wrong?

Answer the question in complete sentences. You are Seniors!! Check your spelling and punctuation or I will start taking off points.
THINK FIRST: (No need to answer these questions, just think about them before you answer the Do Now question.) Who is to say what is right and what is wrong? Many of you said your conscience dictates to you what is correct and what is bad, but do you have free will in your conscience? These are some of the things you all stated helped teach you right from wrong as children: parents, observing, conscience, gut feeling, guilt, religion, morality, law. So how many of you are predisposed to feel a certain way based on the way you have been raised and what society has set as right and wrong?
