After reading the Invisible Man we had to write an essay, and what was great about this is that we had to brainstorm our own thesis (something that I have never done before, usually the teacher provides the student with the thesis) but everyone had a different view on the book. This was a great way of challenging the class as seniors. With writing our own thesis we had to argue and support one’s thinking so it would make sense to the
Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World: Underlining the Importance of Individualism in a Technological World. The modern world is dominated by an astounding amount of humans, yet unfortunately, a significantly lower count of individual people. An individual is someone who sees the world through their own eyes, thinks their own thoughts about it, and disregards any outside attempts to sway their opinions. These innovative people allow society as a whole to progress, and a lack of them dramatically slows change, be it good or bad, leading to a stagnant world in which humanity rejects all change and progress out of fear.
According to the text, self-determination is respect for a client’s own choices. The reason this is difficult to do when working with children's is that they don't understand that their environment may be harmful to them and might think their situation is normal and the same with other families. For example, a child, who needs to be removed from an abusive household, might prefer to be with their family than some random stranger. For example, in the book, "The Glass Castle", which is based on a true story, the children in the book were lived in very poor conditions, were barely fed by their parents, and were also neglected by their parents, but the children never seek out help because their father constantly told that child protective services
Researcher Laurel Woodruff asked a classmate from Liberty University a simple question. Miss Jones, was asked: “How likely are you to help somebody if they appear to be in need of assistance?”. Jones responded by saying that she was extremely likely to assist someone and facilitate their needs. When given a specific question; “If you witness a person fall on a crowded sidewalk full of fast-paced bystanders, would you help them?”, Jones stood by her original response of extremely likely.

Ralph Ellison in his book Invisible Man (1952) defines Identity as: “When I discover who I am, I’ll be free.” (Ellison: 17) A literary text is a vital medium for exploring queries on identity and belonging. S.P. Swain in his Random Thoughts on Identity suggests that three factors determine one’s identity. The first factor is childhood impressions and aspirations.
Institutions of higher education in the United States have increased emphasis on matriculating student bodies representing a wide range of social classes. Though the diversity of students has increased, the achievement gap between students of low socioeconomic status and their peers persists (Stephens, Fryberg, Markus, Johnson, and Covarrubias, 2012a). Stephens et al. (2012a) attribute a portion of this achievement gap to a cultural mismatch model, based on their finding that more than 80% of administrators from first-tier American colleges and universities classified the culture of their institutions as more independent than interdependent.

Kim John Payne once said, “Independence isn’t doing your own thing; it’s doing the right thing on your own.” According to Google, being independent means a person is “free from outside control and does not depend on another 's authority.” Meeting my own needs, doing things for myself, and making my own decisions, have shown me how crucial independence is in life. Going into my Junior year, I learned more than I ever had. I discovered how to meet the needs of myself.
Seclusion is defined by the Mental Health Commission (2009 p.19) as ‘the placing or leaving of a person in any room alone, at any time, day or night, with the exit door locked or fastened or held in such a way as to prevent the person from leaving.’ Newton-Howes (2013) further describes the seclusion room as a locked room, which is sparsely furnished with little detached or hazardous objects in a reduced stimulus environment to promote the regaining of self-control following a period of acute mental distress. The Mental Health Commission recorded 1,403 episodes of seclusion in 2012. According to Gutheil (1978 as cited in Muir-Cochrane 1995) the purpose of seclusion can be identified through three dimensions: the management of unwell persons,
