Further questioning of our students revealed a limited understanding of the literary devices used by the author. By and large, many students were not able to deconstruct these general literary devices. Formidably we launched an initiative called ‘Into the Text. Our goal was to have students recreate the text in their minds, as if they were watching a movie. To be immersed in the scene to a point where they almost hear the sounds, and see the imagery surrounding them, to hear the narrative out loud in their heads.
