Module #15 - What would YOU carry?
Module #14 - Mistakes...Consequences
As your reading of Macbeth is coming to an end, give some thought to this quote.
"I made decisions that I regret, and I took them as learning experiences... I'm human, not perfect, like anybody else.
Did Macbeth learn from his mistakes? Do you consider that he was human and just made errors in judgment or is there more to it? Is Macbeth the only one to blame for the tragedy or are there others? How does this relate to society today?
Since all of this is leading up to a literary analysis of the drama Macbeth, please be sure to add some hearty discussion.
You will need to respond to one (1) peer's post this week.
Module #13 - Fate vs. Free Will
There are many pieces of literature which revolve around the ideas of fate vs. free will. Does a person really have control over his or her life? Or is it a matter of destiny?
In the Final Destination movies, fate comes knocking on the doors of those who dare to defy it. However, the hero in the end is able to control fate by tricking it and therefore having free will.
What do you think? How is this topic relative to your reading thus far? What other connections to literature, film, etc. can you make?
Again, I am expecting that you are putting some thought into this discussion. It should be well-thought, organized, and clear.

Module #12 - Ambition and Drive
Ambition is a quality that is revered in life. Someone with low ambitions is looked up on as a loser of sorts. However, someone with high ambitions and personal drive is said to be motivated, successful, happy, etc.
Is this is always the case? How is this different for Macbeth? How has ambition played a part in your life so far? Where in modern society might you see ambition as a negative?
There are many questions posed above. Be sure that your response is well-organized, clear, and comprehensive. This is a larger issue, and I expect more substance (or "meat") to your response.
