Module 5

Outcomes of Adopting Indexing

        1. An awareness of the uniqueness of each thing that exists.

        2. A preparedness for differences at any time.

        3. A realization that failure to recognize difference leads to prejudice.

        4. The habitual use of the index to make language fit the fact of difference. Ex.             Item1, Item2, and Item3.

           (Above examples are taken from Minteer, Words and What They Do To You, Lesson  11)
