    I am not an English teacher but rather a science teacher taking the class as
    an elective. I am, however, truly enjoying reading and discussing these
    novels. I feel that are some themes that we can cross-cirriculm teach, such
    as the technology question. Have we gone too far and crossed that imaginary
    line both morally and ethically? When reading Flowers for Algernon my first
    reaction was 'what a great idea!' but then I got to thinking...if we raise
    the level of "slower" people to that of genus level, who then becomes the
    "slower" ones, society's now "normal" population? Do we then raise theirs?
    This and other questions about technology are being asked in the science
    classroom and having the literature to refer to is great!
