PERFECT PAIRING #3
Life of Pi and Daily Dilemma #1 (10% discount)
I teach LIFE OF PI and then my Daily Dilemma #1 in several of my courses. These two units go especially well together. The novel is one of my favorites to teach as it raises so many interesting questions. The Daily Dilemma engages students in critical thinking - encouraging them to develop arguments using the facts in the case over mere expression of opinion.
Both the novel and Daily Dilemma #1 immerse the students in philosophical reasoning while they tackle the issues of cannibalism, human dignity, necessity, survival, justice, and ethics.
The issue of cannibalism is obviously raised in both and cannibalism is a topic that students find intriguing and challenging at the same time. Most students have strong feelings/thoughts regarding the consumption of human remains. The conversation encourages students to think about what it means to be human, if there is a soul, and how religion impacts our thoughts as regards death.
AN INTERESTING NOTE: THE DAILY DILEMMA INVOLVES THE MURDER OF A BOY NAMED RICHARD PARKER!!!
