  CAS  reflection  –  Semester  2   Two  KI’s  that  could  be  develop  from  this  discussion:   1. Using  emotion  as  a  way  of  knowing,  to  what  extent  might  CAS  be  said  as  a  moral   obligation?   I  would  say  that  CAS  can  be  a  moral  obligation  and  cannot  be  a  moral  obligation.  The   reason  why  CAS  cannot  be  a  moral  obligation  is  that  some  students  are  forced  to  do  CAS   because  it  is  required  in  the  IB  program.  They  might  think  that  it’s  a  waste  of  time,  and  a   hindrance  for  studying  and  catching  up  work.  For  example,  I  had  to  join  Introduction  to   Photoshop  Club,  because  I  needed  to  get  a  component  for  creativity,  and  also  fill  my  global   importance  criteria.  On  the  other  hand,  CAS  can  be  a  moral  obligation.  Students  might  want   to  participate  in  activities  because  they  enjoy  them  or  they  might  be  their  hobbies.  Students   will  then  think  why  they  should  do  CAS  and  might  encourage  us  to  participate  in  them.  The   ideas  might  be  based  on  emotivism.  Each  student  has  their  own  opinions  and  feelings,  so   they  might  influence  us  to  do  CAS.  For  example,  I  would  recommend  joining  Street  Dancing   Club  because  it  is  fun.  My  friends  actually  decided  to  join  Street  Dancing  Club,  because  of  my   recommendation.   2. How  can  we  judge  what  is  right  or  wrong  using  sense  perception?   We  could  judge  when  something  is  right  or  wrong  using  sense  perception.  We  can  use   consequentialism,  which  is  results-­‐based  ethics.  This  means  that  the  judgment  depends  on   the  results  of  the  act.  Another  KI  would  be  that  how  do  we  know  what  is  right  or  wrong?  I   would  say  that  there  is  no  rule  of  judging  what  is  right  or  wrong.  This  means  that  every   single  person  can  decide  what  is  right  or  wrong.  They  don’t  have  to  agree  on  a  single  answer.   For  example,  someone  might  say  that  killing  is  wrong.  However,  if  someone  is  suffering   because  of  disease  and  if  she  or  he  wants  to  escape  from  suffering  and  they  ask  you  to  kill   that  patient,  and  kill  him  or  her,  then  is  that  wrong?  The  judgment  would  depend  on  each   person  with  individual  thoughts.   Do  you  personally  believe  that  service  is  a  moral  obligation?  What  reasons  can  you  use  to   support  your  personal  opinion?  Please  use  examples  from  your  own  experiences  in  CAS.     Just  like  what  I  wrote  before,  I  would  say  that  CAS  can  be  a  moral  obligation  and   cannot  be  a  moral  obligation.  The  reason  why  CAS  cannot  be  a  moral  obligation  is  that  I  feel   being  forced  to  do  some  of  the  CAS  activities  because  it  is  required  in  the  IB  program.  I  find   some  activities  that  they  are  wasting  our  time,  and  a  hindrance  for  studying  and  catching  up   work.  For  example,  I  had  to  join  Introduction  to  Photoshop  Club,  because  I  needed  to  get  a   component  for  creativity,  and  also  fill  my  global  importance  criteria.   On  the  other  hand,  CAS  can  be  a  moral  obligation.  I  wanted  to  in  some  of  the  CAS   activities  because  I  enjoy  them  or  they  are  my  hobbies.  I  will  then  think  why  we  should  do   CAS  and  might  encourage  others  to  participate  in  them.  The  ideas  might  be  based  on   emotivism.  Each  student  has  their  own  opinions  and  feelings,  so  they  might  influence  us  to   do  CAS.  For  example,  I  would  recommend  joining  Street  Dancing  Club  because  it  is  fun.  My   friends  actually  decided  to  join  Street  Dancing  Club,  because  of  my  recommendation.
