Scribe, Wednesday, August 27th

We started the class out with a quick introduction, and then went into a class discussion about chapters 1-3 of ‘Life of Pi’.

Fish Bowl Summary
- First words of the book, “My suffering left me sad and gloomy”.
-What does that say about the character?
-What mood does that imply the rest of the book is going to have?
-Why talk about pools for 3 whole pages?
-What is Pi telling us?
-What is the author telling us?
-Pi’s family aversion to the water…
-Chapter 2
- Who is speaking?
- Are they speaking about Pi?
- Interesting perspective on how we look at ourselves vs. how other people look at us.
-Will these changes of perspective continue in the rest of the book?

Then Smith handed out a class expectations worksheet that we all signed, you will need to do that when you get to class tomorrow. (Picture attached)
