Goals: To read closely in order to analyze the techniques an author uses to create meaning
Opener: The word count does not apply to today’s opener. Take a PSAT student guide — be careful, as there are two booklets (they are both yours). Flip it to the green side, and turn to page twelve. Skim or read the passage, and answer the first 1-2 questions. Try to answer them without looking at the answer. Then, for your opener, explain what was difficult about the question, what was easy, and why.
