1. First reading: summarize what happened
2. Second reading: Closely analyze what has happened in the passage. What words are being used, and how do they further your understanding? What does the passage make you think of? How does what is happening in the passage contribute to the character?
3. Third reading: what sub themes are being fleshed out here? What is Walker saying about race, gender, feminism, sexism, oppression and power, etc.? How does it contribute to the novel as a whole?
