9 Oct , 2014  

TASK: For this Unit of Inquiry, we are inquiring into how and why the use of power has consequences. For the Independent Inquiry in this unit, we were to choose a person, organization or an activity that is happening around the society. We also needed to write out our prior knowledge about this person and how it contracts with power. We could also include how did the person got power and how did the person use he’s/her power (negative or positive) in our prior knowledge.
