And on the third day, Talbot phoned it in.

Students finished the Brigance, completed the Botel and then utilized the rest of the time working on the I Am poems, which are due tomorrow.

We finished and discussed "This is Water" by David Foster Wallace, with many people sharing what they believed to be the big idea from the speech. We also discussed what other things could be analogous to the water used in the anecdote/joke in the beginning of the speech. Ideas included school, societal life and the idea that everyone is living on a giant rock flying through space. After that, students wrote down questions about college life and class expectations, but we didn't get to delve deeply into too many answers.
