The protagonist relates his state to a hibernation. Maybe this is foreshadowing to a sort of “spring time” or turn in the book where he no longer becomes invisible to everybody, but hypervisible because of something he does r something that happens to him.

I think primitive is an important word to help students have a better understanding of the text. I think it’s a Tier 2 word. Percussion is also important as many students do not know that word.

Oooh! A fun and insightful term to introduce to this conversation Rileigh. Your comments make me think about what we talked in class on Thursday – this idea that our failure to see others’ perspectives might make us more polarized. One might also say that our tendency to attack people and not ideas could lead to polarization. What do you think?

The ability to have a productive, fact based discussion is crucial to learning and growth of any kind. If you truly have a well thought-out opinion or belief, it will be evident from the ideas you present. Attacking people rather than ideas is an ad hominem argument, which is a logical fallacy. If we, as students or instructors, resorted to ad hominem attacks, we would be exposing our inability to prove our ideas and displaying a lack of understanding of the subject. Not are these attacks intellectually dishonest, but they also have the potential to hurt those with whom we are interacting. We should be respectful of each other in every possible way.
