2. Silent Conversation: Do You Have Instagram Envy?
Read the article "The Agonies of Instagram" and answer 2-3 of the following questions on your blog.
- Do you use Instagram? If so, to what degree do you identify with the ideas described in the article?
- Do you think people put too much, too little or just enough energy into the way they depict their lives through photos on social media? Explain.
- Do you ever look forward to events because you know you will post photos afterward?
- Is there anything wrong with that?
- The article quotes David Coggins, who says he doesn’t think people should post “trophies,” or photos of expensive things or places few people get to visit. What is your take on this suggestion?
3. Character Interviews:
Select a character from In Cold Blood that you would like to interview. This character could be someone who was already interviewed extensively, such as Dick or Perry, or a character who was never interviewed, such as the rich German tourist, Otto. You will be creating 5 questions for this person (think why and how rather than who, what, when, where) and then your partner will answer them using clues from the book.
