Reflection: Pacing Introduction To Faulkner’s “A Rose For Emily” - Section 6: Discuss Section II


It was important for me to make sure that we got far enough into the story to get students “hooked.” It was also important to give them time to read closely and discuss what they had read, as these are important habits they need to develop. This meant we were only able to get through two short sections of the story today, but luckily, the second section ends at a point that really captured students’ imagination and interest. The reading-discussing-reading-discussing cycle works well for my students because they need the time to tackle the reading, to interact with the text by annotating, and to digest what they read through discussion. These activities help my struggling readers make sense of a story that may otherwise greatly confuse them.
