11/12 Can you read? Dual narrative voice & humor

Can you read?

Today's class asked this question of material previously "read" for homework. However, our struggle to even summarize two pages of To Kill A Mockingbird so challenged us that it seems that we can't read.

The good news: identifying dual narrative voice helps us understand our "job" as a reader

The bad news: reading is hard

Be honest with your reading. When you get to the bottom of a page, and you have not understood what was said, stop and go back. Break down sentences into meaning chunks; build from what you know, and ask strong questions when confused.

Be honest. You can't read.
