    This week the assignment was to watch Lemonade (visual album) by Beyoncé and read “What Do the Teens Know About this Tweet That We Don’t?” by Ashley Feinberg and “How Instagram Threads Became the WikiHow for Gen Z” by Taylor Lorenz. Also, we were to post our Project #2 Research Essay prewriting.


    Intro: Background on psychedelics, why humans are attracted to self development.
    Body Paragraphs: Case studies on LSD/DMT. Defining “expansion of consciousness”.
    Outro/Conclusion: Final reflections on articles/ case studies. Understanding why drugs mentioned in essay could benefit users, rather than harm them, and why mainstream society has for so long denied the benefits of such chemicals.
