“Literature Based Writing Prompt – Flowers for Algernon” - In the short story, “Flowers for Algernon” by Daniel Keyes, Charlie is a mentally-challenged young man who undergoes an experimental surgical procedure in order to increase his intelligence. As Charlie’s IQ increases, he not only gains academic knowledge, but he also comes to a realization about the people around him. Charlie writes:
It’s a funny thing I never knew that Joe and Frank and the others liked to have me around all the time to make fun of me. Now I know what it means when they say “to pull a Charlie Gordon.” I’m ashamed.
Think about Joe and Frank’s treatment of Charlie. Would you consider Joe and Frank bullies? Write to present your opinion to the reader about whether or not Joe and Frank are bullies.
