For Wednesday's quiz--our very last! We'll write on ONE of the following...
What kind of rules of behavior/morality do the police and other officials enforce in Marjane's daily life? Why is the government so concerned about many of these little details, especially since we consider them harmless—or even necessary for our normal existence?
How is college remarkably different in fundamentalist Iran than here at ECU? Why might this highlight the entire point of college (at least in America), which the regime in Iran is fundamentally opposed to?
How do these women express their values and identity in a society that really doesn't allow them to? What secret signs and codes do they use to show defiance, without overtly flaunting authority?
Throughout the book, Marjane's grandmother is the voice of reason and morality. What is surprising about her advice/outlook on life? What rules and lessons does she try to teach Marjane, and why does this help her decide to once more leave Iran?
