Education 205 has taught me so much and opened my eyes on so many different opinions and views that others have. It also opened up my thoughts and views I have on the world. I not only learned so much about different bias’ and assumptions but changed my view on one. I had a few assumptions and biases. I didn’t think frisking was a good thing and didn’t know it was still going on in New York city. I also found out the real definition of frisking.

There were only a few differences between the two religions. This speaker really opened my eyes. I am not a very religious person, because I never strongly believed in my religion (Catholicism). After this speaker I thought twice about my religion and what I believed in. This opened me up to a new religion I didn’t know much about and had assumptions about.
