42 and close reading

42 is available for purchase on Amazon Prime. We will watch short segments in class from time to time. There is no requirement  make up what we watched in class.

How to do a “Close Reading” of a text:

1. Read with a pencil in hand, and annotate the text.

2. What do you notice? What can the first 2 pages tell us? What kind of people are these people? What can you predict? Annotate/mark/underline anything.

3. Ask questions about what you've noticed. Pay attention to language.
