As part of the Crash Course, a great video by John Green on why we read critically:
I know that in middle/high school, I also asked, “But did the author really mean for us to analyze all this?” I like that John points out that authors are trying to use precise and layered and interesting language to communicate deep emotions, not just to torture English students. (That’s a bonus, of course. Mwahaha!)
Can’t wait to read the see of this series!
