1.What was your first reaction when reading the title of the story?I thought that she was talking about how she actually killed herself.But then how can she talk about it if she’s dead. So then we thoughtthat she was miserable in 6
grade. That was our first reaction fromthe title.2.After reading the story, what does the author really mean whenshe writes that she died in the sixth grade? Did she really die?Explain your answer using examples from the story.When she said she died she meant that she lost her pride and wasalone with no friends or anyone to talk to. No she did not die at all.She is very much alive because she said that now she is marriedand has kids. That is what she meant when she said she “died”.3.How does the author describe herself before she “died?” Goback to the story and find adjectives that describe herpersonality.She described herself as smart, compassionate, out- going, andsometimes over – bearing. That is how she described herself beforeshe “died”.
