Writing Prompt 2/21/2011

We think there should be a bootcamp one can attend to learn courtesy and kindness. While you may think such a set-up would be highly oxymoronic, it can work. Make it so.

Here are some things to ponder:

Where does it take place?
Who runs it? What are the individuals’ roles (ranks)?
What is the schedule? How long does it run?
What are the rewards for completion of tasks?
How is discipline handled? What consequences do you face for infractions or failures?
What are the rules for acceptance to bootcamp, and for expulsion and potential readmission? Do you graduate? What are the final projects to determine your rank and status? What are the guidelines for retention?
