I think that the greatest danger to Richard is himself because he feels powerless in his many situations. He is giving himself many fears that are taking over his imagination and the way he thinks. His fears are changing the way he perceives people. Reading is important to Richard because he wants to learn about the world and the things in it because he doesn't know alot of stuff. ~SarahW CV~

I think Richards biggest threat is himself he is always very curious and is going to get himself in trouble asking too many questions. He's already been slapped numerous times by his mother and Grand mother because he was getting too curious with his questions. I think reading is important to Richard because he wants to learn more about "whites" and the world surrounding him. Although doing all this reading is getting him into trouble and since he freezes in front of people no one believes that he can read.

I think Richard is the biggest danger to himself because he never thinks about what he is saying before he says it. This causes him to get in a lot of troble.Reading is so important to Richard because it opens his mind to things he never knew about. It also helps him take his mine off life.~*KristIn*~

Richard's perception of white people's families is that they openly swear at each other and that they don't trust black people. I don't think that Richard should be forced to have to belive in his mother's religion. Everybody should be able to belive or not belive in whatever they want. Being forced to do something because your family does will push him away from them even more than before. ~SarahW~CV~

Richard thinks that white people don't have much respect for each other by swearing at each other. I agree with Sarah W. when she said that white people don't trust balck people. I also agree that Richard should not be forced to worship his mother's religion because if he doesn't believe in the religion, he should not worship it. Richard wanted to be more associated with his friends from school, so he got involved in church activities. ~*Kristin*~ CV

Richard is his biggest danger. he doesnt know when to stop, and he never does stop when told, and that just brings more danger unto himself. Reading to richard is like exploring the world to us, he wants to learn things that he cant experence himself. -Galina CV

Richards perception of white families is that they are bossy, swear a lot at family members,and have no respect for anyone not of their race they also take reading and writing lightly. I think that Richards mother should not force him to do something he doesn't want to do but on the other hand as long as he's under her care and suprvision he should abide by her rules even if it includes something he dosen't want to do. *Jessica CV*

I agree with Goling that Richard shoud not be made to worship his mothers religion because it is realy his own choice, he shoudl be able to believe what he wants. Richards preseption of white peoples' familys is that white familys is that they have no respect for blacks. He thinks that they are extremely racist and every time he sees one he becomes angry. He thinks that they are constantly swearing at one another and often insults the white race. Do you think that Richard is correct (given the circumstance) to acuse whites of such crueltys?

question number one: I agree with Sara when she said that Richard was the greatest threat to himself. I think this becaseu he often caused himself trouble in one wy or another. question number two: Reading is very important to Richard because he has trouble learning things from his family and school. Therefore, Richard reads and through his reading he learns. Mary CV

question number one: Richard doesnt seem to respect whites very much. He finds them to be rude and intrusive. He thinks that they are all racist and mean. question number two: I dont think that anybody should ever be forced to worship any kind of religion. I think that if he wants to, he should be able to believe in God, however because he does not wish to believe, that it shouls be his own choice. Mary CV

I think that Richards biggest danger is himself because he asks alot of questions the he probly shouldn't ask them. Also he does alot of things that arn't great, like getting into fights. I think that he also is a danger to himself because its doesn't seem like he has very much control over hs anger and he likes to take it out on other people. I think that Richard likes to read so much because by reading he can go into his own kind of world. I also think he likes reading so much because it answer so many of his questions that other people can't or won't answer for him. Dani Wilder

I think that Richard is a danger to himself because he is always getting himself into trouble every time he opens his mouth. Because he doesnt think before he talks. I think reading is so importent to Richard because it helps his ge his mind off of all the horrible things in his life and focus about his future and how to make it better. ~CV~

The reason he decided to be the Warts tudor is so that he can keep an eye on him and watch him grow into King Arthur and be able to guide him and help him stay out of trouble and harms way. *Jessica*

Merlin is Wart's tutor because he knows that with his help Wart will turn his life into something worthwile in the future (King Aurthur). ~SARAH W~CV

I think Merlin decided to become Wart's tutor is because he knew he had to. He had already seen the future, so he knew he must do this, in order to keep the past, and future, from changing.

Yet this particullar theory makes little sense to me. How is it possible for Merlin to live through time backwards? Unless he lives this way in specific parts, and later goes backwards into the past, he would have to do EVERYTHING backwards, in life. He would have to walk, talk, act, move, and think, backwards, just so he could interact with anybody. Plus, there is no way of know ing he could keep up with the people in time continuum, by doing this. -Nate A.

Merlyn thought he should be Wart's tutor because he knew that Aurthur was the one who would be able to pull the sword out of the stone. He knew about Wart all his life because he asked Uther to bear him a child. ~%Kristin%~CV

I think that because Merlyn can see into the future, he probably knew that Wart would become king Arthur eventually. And if Merlyn knew this he would become Warts tutor in order to made him as good a king as he could.

He knew that The Wart would become king, and he knew that the Wart woudl probably need help. merlin just wanted to teach The Wart everythign he needed to know, so that he could be kind, just, and prepared. ***Mary, CV***

I think the biggest threat to Richard is his father. Jis father is far from a nice man, and he could have influenced Richard into acting as he does, if Richard wasn't so smart.

Reading is important to Richard because it helps him escape the world he hates, and get involved into something he loves. -Nate
