Charlie is a mentally disabled person who is going to school, their is a chance to be selected for a operation in order to increase his intelligence. Charlie really wants to learn so he wants to be selected for the operation to become smart like his teacher Miss Kinnain.
Be careful this operation is to increase his IQ
The conflict of Flowers for Algernon is Charlie is a mentally disabled person who has it harder then most other people. His IQ is only 68, he wants to become as smart as he can and he does have the chance to with a operation. All Charlie wants is to become smart.
I need to find a cause for the backlash
Charlie has to go through some tests in order to go through the operation. He first has to take a ink blot test then he has to take a maze which he calls ¨amazed¨ he then races Algernon which is a mouse that had the operation done on him. Algernon ends up beating Charlie multiple times to the point were Charlie hates him.
Charlie ends up passing the tests and gets the operation done on him. After the operation he doesn't feel smarter at all, he then goes back through the maze test which Algernon ends up still beating him but then Charlie beats him for the first time then got to excited and lost the second time.
Charlie ends up increasing his IQ to almost 200, he ends up finding out that Algernon started getting dumb and started biting.Charlie starts to forget things and starts to try to figure out whats the cause of this or the backlash to it. He ends up losing memories of what has happened or stuff.
Charlie ends up forgetting how to spell and stuff and locks himself in his apartment. He forgets things and punctuation., he writes a note to Miss Kinnain saying he didn't know what he did to become dumb again and then decides to leave home to a whole new place so nobody would know how smart Charlie use to be.
Goodbye Miss KInnian and Dr. Stratuss and evrebody. And P.S. please tell Dr Nemur not to be such a grouch when pepul laff at him and he would have more frends....
