  1. Weaving Quotations Selecting for significance presenting with fluidity and clarity

  2. Unwoven Sample People obey authority and become agents of evil because of the pressure they feel is being put on by the authority figure. For example, after being the subject in one of the shock tests, Mr. Braverman said, “This was a sheer reaction to a totally impossible situation. And my reaction was to the situation of having to hurt somebody. And being totally helpless and caught up in a set of circumstances where I just couldn’t deviate and I couldn’t try to help” (26). Mr. Braverman felt as if he had no choice but to do what the experimenter asked.

  3. Woven Sample 1 Original: People obey authority and become agents of evil because of the pressure they feel is being put on by the authority figure. For example, after being the subject in one of the shock tests, Mr. Braverman said, “This was a sheer reaction to a totally impossible situation. And my reaction was to the situation of having to hurt somebody. And being totally helpless and caught up in a set of circumstances where I just couldn’t deviate and I couldn’t try to help” (26). Mr. Braverman felt as if he had no choice but to do what the experimenter asked. Woven: People obey authority and become agents of evil because of the pressure they feel is being put on by the authority figure. For example, after being the subject in one of the shock tests, Mr. Braverman said that he had felt “totally helpless and caught up in a set of circumstances where [he] just couldn’t deviate and [he] couldn’t try to help” (26).

  4. Woven Sample 2 Original: People obey authority and become agents of evil because of the pressure they feel is being put on by the authority figure. For example, after being the subject in one of the shock tests, Mr. Braverman said, “This was a sheer reaction to a totally impossible situation. And my reaction was to the situation of having to hurt somebody. And being totally helpless and caught up in a set of circumstances where I just couldn’t deviate and I couldn’t try to help” (26). Mr. Braverman felt as if he had no choice but to do what the experimenter asked. Woven: People obey authority and become agents of evil because of the pressure they feel is being put on by the authority figure. For example, after being the subject in one of the shock tests, Mr. Braverman said, “This was a sheer reaction” to the test and to feeling powerless.

  5. Student Sample 1 Original quote: “There’s too many left here. I mean, Jeez, if he gets them wrong, there’s too many of them left. I mean, who’s going to take the responsibility if anything happens to that gentleman?” (Milgram 12). Woven: Peoples actions, not their thoughts, should measure their morality or “goodness.” When a person doesn’t have to “take the responsibility” of their actions and its consequences, they continue with their actions without thought (Milgram 12).

  6. Student Sample 2 Original quote: “Surprisingly, though, the subjects who did not report the seizure seemed more emotionally taxed than did those who did report the seizure” (“Introduction to Bystander Apathy” 13). Woven: One’s morality should be based off his/her thoughts. Just because someone didn’t help doesn’t mean that person is evil. They are just dumbfounded on what happened, they were “emotionally taxed.”

  7. Student Sample 3 Original quote: “I gave my father what was left of my soup. But it was with a heavy heart. I felt that I was giving it up to him against my will. No better than Rabbi Eliahou’s son had I withstood the test” (Wiesel 112). Woven: Morality can be seen differently, but I believe that negative thoughts can be overruled by positive actions, as can positive intentions overrule negative actions. Elie demonstrates this when he “[gives his father] what was left of [his] soup,” even if it was “with a heavy heart” (Wiesel 112).

  8. Student Sample 4 Original quote: “I gave my father what was left of my soup. But it was with a heavy heart. I felt that I was giving it up to him against my will. No better than Rabbi Eliahou’s son had I withstood the test” (Wiesel 112). Woven:We all have our own thoughts, even immoral in some cases, but its our actions that truly convey our morality. For instance in the autobiography The Night by the request of his dying and starving father Ellie gave him the last of his soup. With a heavy heart he felt like he was giving it to him against his will.

  9. Student Sample 5 Original quote: “There’s too many left here. I mean, Jeez, if he gets them wrong, there’s too many of them left. I mean, who’s going to take the responsibility if anything happens to that gentleman?” (Milgram18). Woven:Thoughts play a major role in determining an individual’s morality. This person was genuinely concerned for the other, saying, “There’s too many,” and that something may have “happened to [the] gentleman” (18).

  10. Student Sample 6 Original quote: “Surprisingly, though, the subjects who did not report the seizure seemed more emotionally taxed than did those who did report the seizure” (“Introduction to Bystander Apathy” 13). Woven: Instead of just considering one’s action, people should consider a person’s thoughts when measuring morality. For instance, when test subjects had the option to report a seizure, people who didn’t say anything seemed more upset “than did those who did report” it (13).
