Transcript of Copy of Literature Lesson
What are some questions that will be asked of me in the Literary Analysis Section?
How do I attack the Literary Analysis Section?
1. If you are able to see the questions, READ the questions FIRST! Doing this may give you a glimpse of the main points of the story and what the test will be asking you to do.
2. Do a "Cold Read"- this is also called a COMPREHENSION read. This is a quick read that should give you a BASIC understanding of the story's:
Plot or sequence of events
After the "Cold Read" you should ask yourself, "Does this story make sense as a whole?
3. Lastly, Reread the story (2nd read) for INTERPRETATION- this is a much SLOWER read than the Cold Read. You are reading in order to "fill" the pieces of the puzzle that are not directly stated. Pay attention to the mood of the story, purpose, tone, character's motivation and point of view.
