In school We read “A Tale of Two Cities” by Charles Dickens. Our class had to analyze the first paragraph of the first chapter called “The Period.” When we were done analyzing we had to go up the board and show our teacher what we had noticed inside the paragraph. Analyzing things applies to everything, so get good at it; you will need it in life.
