background image FDCIV 101 | WORKBOOK 1.1 Understanding Difference & Dialogue ANNIE BOGLE PART 1  |  KEY CONCEPTS  – 15 pts After   reviewing   your   class   notes,   and   studying   the   materials
associated with this lesson, you should thoroughly understand
the following concepts, and their relationship to each other:
The difference between “disagreement” and “contention” Complementary Differences & Creative Tensions The Mormon Ethic of Civility The Wood Principle (hint: it was the lesson Robert S. 
Wood learned as a student, which was “Before you…”)
Principles of Productive Discourse Faith Centered Dialectics (words matter, people matter, 
In your own words, define each of the key concepts, providing a
concrete and specific example (from history, society, your own
experience, etc.) to illustrate it.
1. Disagreeing with someone isn’t always bad, it merely means that you  see the world differently as they do. It is only when you let anger get 
the better of you and allow contention fester in the disagreement that 
it causes problems.  2. Just because things are complete opposites to each other doesn’t  mean that one is better than the other. It’s through these differences 
that we get to see a bigger picture than we did before, we get to see 
the same old picture in a new light. 3. We understand and respect others opinion, but that doesn’t mean we 
background image won’t stand up for ourselves and the positions we stand for. 4. We must understand those who we disagree with, to understand why  they think that way, only then can we create a counter argument that  they could understand.  5. Everything matters, do not let someone tell you different. Your  words, beliefs, people, everything matters.  PART 2  |  QUESTIONS  – 5 pts While   you   were   studying   these   concepts,   what   are   some
questions that came to your mind as you were reading them? In
2-3   sentences,   please   explain   why   those   particular   questions
came   to   your   mind   as   you   studied.   Your   explanation   might
include personal experiences, history, outside reading, etc. An
example of this would be:
"How can one accurately define how malleable our natural man
is? I used to think that people were either good or evil. I didn't
take into account that they can choose to be one or the other, or
if   all   men   are   made   good   and   evil.   Apparently   it's   not   that
simple either. It's also dependent on whether we are prone to
certain behaviors or not that makes us who we are."
How are we to love our enemies when our enemies have done crimes that have been unforgivable? How are we supposed to forgive them if they are
repeat offender? How can there be peace when it seems all our enemies do is
put us down and betray us whenever they get the chance? PART 3  ESSAY  – 30 pts Having   finished   your   study   of   the   key   concepts,   and   having
thought through relevant questions, write an essay (no longer
than 500 words) on the following:
Think of a time in which you engaged in a discussion with
someone with whom you deeply disagreed (it could be on
anything, including politics, doctrine, policies, economics,
culture, etc.).
