What are the positive and negative effects of peer pressure? After reading The Pact, write a FIVE HUNDRED letter to your fellow college students that examines the causes of one of the doctor’s successes and struggles and explains the effect(s) of the pact he made with his two friends. What conclusions or implications can you draw? Support your discussion with evidence from the text. Then, reflect on your own experiences and think of what “peer pressure” means to you. What has been your experience with it, either negative or positive, up to this point?
