Dead Poet's Society-Mr. Keating vs. Welton Academy

During the first scene of Part 2, Mr. Keating stands on his desk.
  1. Why does Mr. Keating stand on his desk?
  2. How does this lesson differ from what Welton Academy believes students should learn?
This scene is an important part of the movie. Make sure to keep that in mind.

  1. What is Mr. Keating trying to teach his students?
  2. An administrator (Welton Academy staff member) is observing this lesson. What might he be thinking?

1. Mr. Keating stands on his desk to show the class how to look at things in a different way.

2. Welton believes that students should follow tradition and not try to be unique.

3. Again, he is trying to teach his students how to be different.

4. He might be thinking, "What is he doing?" or " This does not follow our rules"

Alice H (LRT 5/6 B) said...

1. To look at his surroundings in a new perspective.
2. Conformity, tradition, looking at things the way they have been looked at by others.
3. To be their own person, to not fall into the current.
4. He could be thinking that the lesson is crazy. They should learn to do what society wants them to do and if they feel like thinking later, they can do that.

Rachael said...

1) Mr. Keating stands on his desk to demonstrate that looking at the world in a different point of view is better than being like everyone else and looking at the world from the sidelines.
2) This lesson differs from what Welton Academy teaches because it teaches you to think for yourself and have different outlooks vs. only sticking to the rules.
3) Keating is trying to teach his students to do what they want and not worry about what others think of them.
4) The administator probably thinks that Mr. Keating is unorthodox and strange.

Maggie A (LRT 7/8b) said...

1) mr Keatings stands on his desk to himself and his class that you should look at everything from a different point of view, and not always the same way.
2)At Welton everyone believes in the four standards which are tradition, honor, excellence and discipline.
3)He wants to show his sutdents that you don't always have to follow everyone else. You can be unique, you don't always have to fit in with the popular crowd. Everyone should march to the beat of their own drum.
4)I think that he dissaproves of the way he is teaching the students. Again it is that different hing. He has diffeernt methods of teaching and I think that scares people when others are different from you.

Emma C said...

Mr.Keating basically is daring to be different from the other teachers. He wants to teach the students that school doesn't have to be boring and that every once in a while it should be fun!

Austyn N-S (LRT 1/2A) said...

1) Mr. Keating stands on his desk in effort to show the class how and too look at the world in a different way.

2) This differs from what the Academy is trying to teach because they want the students to learn in a specific, structured matter; Keatings is basically telling the students to do the exact oppsite.

3) I think he is trying to teach his students how to be different and unique.

4) He's probably wondering why the heck Mr.Keatings is doing this instead of following the curriculum.

Brian B (1/2 B) said...

1. He is trying to show the students to look at things from a different perspective.

2. It is different because Welton has strong traditions and they don't want to CHANGE. Mr. Keating is telling them to be more unique.

3. Mr. Keating is teaching his students to be themselves. Not to be what others are.

4. He might think that Mr. Keating is a weird teacher and he may be breaking some rules.

He stands on his desk to remind himself and his students to look at things in a different perspective

Welton's teachings follow one single point of view and never varies. Mr. Keating encourages his students to see things from different perspectives

Mr Keating has his students do the walking activity to teach them that they shouldn't conform to what others are doing, do your own walk

The administrator probably thought that Mr. Keating was very strange in bringing his class outside and have them walk around

Mr. Keating stands on his desk so he can look at the room from a different perspective. Welton Academy wants all the students to follow tradition and look at everything like everybody else looks at them.

Mr. Keating is showing the students how they all fall into the current together subconsciously. He is trying to show them how to be their own person, how to be unique.

The administrator might be thinking it was a mistake hiring Mr. Keating.
