Assignment Questions

End of Life Issues in Tuesday With Morrie

Read the book Tuesdays with Morrie and answer ANY FOUR of the following questions in essay form. You can blend the four answers to the questions into one essay or separate them by paragraphs.

This assignment should be BETWEEN 3-5 pages in length. (1 ½ spacing, 1” margins)

1. Did your opinion about Mitch change as the book went on? In what way?
2. Do you think Mitch would have listened to Morrie if Morrie hadn’t been dying? Does impending death automatically make one’s voice able to penetrate where it couldn’t before?
3. Most of us have read of people discussing the way they’d like to die, or, perhaps, have been a part of that conversation. One common thought is that it would be best to live a long, healthy life and then die suddenly in one’s sleep. After reading this book, what do you think about that? Given a choice, would Morrie have taken that route instead of the path he traveled?
**4. On “Nightline,” Morrie spoke to Ted Koppel of the pain he still felt about his mother’s death seventy years prior to the interview (you can access 8 shorter parts of the video via this link: HYPERLINK “http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-_mxu8FzOEU” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-_mxu8FzOEU. Is your experience with loss similar or different? Does what you’ve read in this book help ease any of that pain?
As his visits with Morrie continued, Mitch explored some other cultures and religions and how each views death. Discuss these and others that you’ve studied.
Would Morrie‘s lessons have carried less weight if Mitch and Peter hadn’t resumed contact by book’s end?
Was Morrie making a judgment on people who choose not to have kids with his statement: “If you want the experience of having complete responsibility for another human being, and to learn how to love and bond in the deepest way, then you should have children”? Whether or not he was making a judgment, do you agree with the statement?

**My two sources include the book, Tuesdays with Morrie and the youtube link(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-_mxu8FzOEU” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-_mxu8FzOEU), and if you need any other sources thats fine.
The class is a death and dying class so we learned about attitudes, beliefs, and feelings about death, the death system, dying: transition from life, hospice and pallative care, and suicide.

Please add citations within the text and a works cited, and quotations would be great as well.

**My professor needs a draft by friday so if you want can you send me a unfinished one prior to the Delivery date?
There are faxes for this order.
