One of the suggestions of the students was the idea that everyone come to class dressed in black. This was thought by the student to add a “tone of mystery” and a “sense of import” to the class. However, this backfired in the way that it drew so much attention to the difference between the class and the reporter. Ewen even refers to this last suggestion as “the most perilous”, and acknowledges the concerns of one student that the sea of black clothing might too closely resemble a funeral. However, after a lot of discussion, Ewen agrees to this final spin on the class.
