About This Activity

This virtual summer reading workshop will focus on discussing the plot, character and themes of Yann Martel’s world epic Life of Pi. This novel incorporates a wide perspective as the main character travels overseas and touches many continents; additionally, it is a novel of faith in the middle of seemingly never-ending affliction, with a conclusion that is restorative and hopeful. Students will be required to read before the class meetings, including reading the first 93 pages of the novel before the class begins. During our virtual two-hour class, we will utilize Zoom for instructional purposes, as well as Zoom’s Breakout Room feature for collaborating on chapter questions, summer reading packet work and for hosting small-group discussions. Teachers will provide instruction via Zoom, as well as in recorded videos. Students will need to dedicate the full two-hour class time each day to working on course material, as well as to reading for approximately one hour in preparation for the next day’s lesson. Students will have daily teacher feedback on questions and reading comprehension and will get a clear vision for their end-of-summer synthesis essay that they will write comparing some aspect of Life of Pi to its counterpart in their chosen Senior Thesis novel. The class will also view portions of the movie to flesh out their understanding of the novel. Enrollment is limited to 20 students per section.
