We were asked to write some annotations from the Authors Note, and chapters 1-3:
Some of the discussions:
  • What does the sloth have to do with this story?
“Pi described the sloths as happy, slow, and complicated creature.”

“The first time I turned a tap on, its noisy, wasteful superabundant gsh was such a shock that I became incoherent and my legs collapsed..”

“This is what I will be looking for on. We will be discussing in groups on Wednesday”
-Mrs. Smith

End of class: had time to work on book annotations and song lyrics
