Number 3 might be a little be longer than the other questions ( 2 paragraphed)
1. How does Hershey, in her article From Poster Child to protester, define pity? (You May quote her.)
2. Having viewed the CNN 2017 Hero of the Year Video. Do you think that Amy Wright, who has done a great deed in employing people with physical and intellectual disabilities at her coffee shop, should be named hero of the year? How does the standing ovation in the video compare with the standing ovation of the nondisabled actors playing disabled actors in Code of the Freaks? While there is no perfect answer, I am looking for ways in which you think a disabled person might view this scenario.
3. You were asked to read one of the Disability Myth paper examples on canvas. State which essay you read, and then briefly describe the strengths and the weakness of that essay using the questions below:
a. Identify the argument or purpose of the paper. What does the write hope to accomplish? Does the writer articulate the topic matter well and concisely?
b. Does the thesis and evolving thesis answer the writers so-what question? If so, how?
c. What catches your eyes about the writers work?
d. Do you have suggestions for ways in which the writer could =have strengthened his or her paper?
e. What ideas do you think you might want to incorporate from the writers work into your own disability Myth paper?
f. From one to five (five being the highest), what number would you give the essay?
4. Rebecca Sanchez argues that framing disclosure as a singular communicative exchange (pretty much like what we have seen with the CNN video) reinforces preconceptions about disability as static, scary or sad. She contends that if we portray or frame disability in ways that nondisabled people can relate to, we might be able to move away from the emphasis on a singular idea of disability towards an articulation of more flexible ways of doing disability in public space (211). She names three ways we can make disability feel more relatable and more accepting to the public, without making the disability disclosure for the disabled person a painful one. PICK ONE of the three examples and discuss it.
