Discussion Module 5
Discussion Prompt: Tell us, in the first paragraph, about a time when you had to give a speech that praised or blamed someone you know and care about (can be a more formal speech, say a eulogy or a wedding toast, or an informal occasion, such as speaking to the character of a friend to other friends). What was the occasion, what did you say, and what was the reaction? In the second paragraph tell us how you decided to focus on the personal characteristics you set out in your speech, and why were they so important to you. In the third paragraph, tell us how speaking of her or his character in this way affected how you think about yourself.
