The Renaissance Man In the film there was a group named the double ad’s. They are called double ad’s meaning, dumbest dog shot. The people from that group are chosen to be in that group because those students are the ones that do not comprehend the army duty. Mr.. Raga, the teacher from the group double ad’s, was not as responsible. Facing some of his own consequences like, getting fired from his previous Job, losing his relationship slowly with his only daughter, and not taking his new Job as a teacher seriously. But during the film he went through some times where he changed.
From the students touching him in an emotional level and being in an army base facility he changed. Three things that Mr.. Raga changed was his character attitude, and got some discipline. His character changed by not being mean and rude to people he found from his students that there is more to a person that what meets the eye. His attitude changed from how he acts with people to how he looked at his teaching Job. At first he didn’t want the Job but after time he found out how important changing and helping the kids life really is.
He became more disciplined by the Army, getting to time early or in time and getting himself straight with his priorities. I believe the most important change from the three, is his attitude. Because I think attitude says a lot about a person. How you are with people and it shows how your real character really is. By changing his own attitude he turned from being selfish and only caring about his own life to wanting to make somebody else’s life better. At first Mr.. Raga was thinking of teaching comprehensive material to the students so they could be able to o and pass the requirements to graduate from the U.
S. Army. However he thought them something else from somewhere he never thought would capture they’re attention. Mr.. Raga introduced hamlet by William Shakespeare to the double ad’s. The students could relate the play to their lives; the play gave the students motivation, giving them something to look at in order to keep on going and pursuing their goals in life. Each of the double ad’s had their own struggles and life, and their own destiny of making it to the Army, but there was this one specific double d. s name was Nathaniel Hobbs, he was a very smart student and the one that connected to Mr.. Raga the most; he saw potential for the student and wanted to help him. There were consequences in that though, Mr.. Raga went to talk to the sergeant, they found out Nathaniel Joined the army to escape from hid felony of selling drugs, so he went to jail. I think it was Nathaniel own fault because it was his decision of selling drugs and even though it’s in the past you have to deal with the consequences of your actions. Before Mr..
Raga changed his ways he faced an enemy on the way through his change. Mr.. Raga did not get along with sergeant Lou. Sergeant Lou thought Mr.. Raga was not disciplined enough and was not strict enough with his class. You would think it would end up in a feud but surprisingly Mr.. Raga got his own discipline from sergeant Lou, and changed of character. Even though things might not look as good as a situation something good always happens. Even though sergeant Lou thought Mr.. Raga was not as strict or as disciplined, the classmates got an effect on the class.
