Scribe 3rd hr.-April 15

Sorry about the late post everybody absent on Tuesday, but here's a little summary of what went down in class. First, we had another presentation by Jeffery and Patrick and Alyssa, with their five question quiz. Then we got into a fishbowl setting with an inner and outer circle, and we started discussing the questions we have written about pgs. 167-224. The conversation included the big topic of trust. Which characters can be trusted was an example of the talk. We discussed trust as well as betrayal and whether or not Winston would turn on Julia or vis versa. We also talked about the sudden revelation of Mr. Charrington as a member of the Thought Police, as most everyone was surprised when they read that part.
For the second part of class we had a Q and A session with a teacher from South Africa, that teaches 9 th grade English and History. He was really cool and fun to talk to, as he had a pretty strong accent. We went from the topic of giraffes to poverty, so it was interesting. I think I'm right in saying that he told that he was on a scholarship to observe United States/Arapahoe High School teaching methods and techniques. So overall it was a good class, fun to chat with a foreigner. That's it in a nutshell.
