How was August’s first experience of a school?
How do we know that the story is set in America? (Homeroom, elective, middle school)
What does August mean when he says that his teacher smiles at her with glassy eyes?
This is metaphor. It means that her eyes look shiny like glass. Why might her eyes be shiny? Why might she be upset or sad for August?
August hints that people treat him differently because of the way that he looks but he doesn’t describe what he looks like. The author has purposefully decided to leave a description out. Why do you think this is?
Can you listen up to 1 hour by the end of the Easter holidays?
