Week 5 Discussion Question - Wyman

In the chapter "Scars" we learn about a ritual from Sudan that symbolizes becoming a man in Kek's tribe. Why do you think Kek is so upset that he "will never have the gaar?" Ganwar tells him the scars mean nothing in America, but Kek is still very upset. Kek also tells Ganwar he doesn't think he has shown himself to be brave, Ganwar disagrees. Do you think Kek has shown bravery, yes or no? Explain your thinking. Use examples from the story to support your answer.

Make sure to answer the question with a RAD response and use details from the text to support your answer. Please check your grammar, spelling, capitalization, and conventions before submitting your response.

Week 4 Question

On page 242, Kek whispers to Gol, "If you can moo, you can sing." Earlier in the book, Kek was given the advice, "If you can talk you can sing. If you can walk you can dance." This advice is valuable to Kek (and Gol). Tell who said it and what it means. you can describe what's going on as well.
