Chapter Five (Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom)

CHAPTER FIVE – The Orientation
25 27 Inspired by this interview, which Albom had seen when it was broadcast on television, Albom decided to pay Morrie a visit. What fact about his reunion with his former professor was Albom ‘not proud of’? Albom was not proud of putting his work first on his reunion with his former professor. When he arrived at Morrie’s house, he decided to conclude a business call rather than leaping straight out of the car and greeting his former professor.
26 28 When Albom and Morrie finally met again, they shared an emotional reunion. However Albom felt uncomfortable. Why was this? Albom felt uncomfortable with the warmth of their reunion because he knew that he ‘was no longer the good, gift-bearing student he remembered’.
27 30 During the years in which Albom was taught by Morrie, the professor had shown himself to be uninterested in grades and marking and, it was rumoured, during the Vietnam war Morrie had given all of his male students ‘As’. Why had he done this? It was rumoured that Morrie had given all of his male students ‘As’ during the Vietnam War so that they could keep their student deferments and thus not be conscripted into the army.
28 30-31 What nickname did Albom give Morrie, and how did his professor react to this? Albom began to call Morrie ‘coach’, in the same way that he did his track coach. Morrie was delighted with this nick name and told Albom that ‘I’ll be your coach. And you can be my Player. You can play all the lovely parts of life that I am too old for now.’
