Episode Summary

After hearing the opening passage from Edgar Allan Poe's The Fall of the House of Usher, host Wally Amos introduces the format of the five Reading programs. He shows a method that will be instrumental throughout the entire series: looking for context clues to find the meanings of difficult words. As an example, two women at a coffee break discuss the word jargon. Wally Amos also discusses the difference between concrete and abstract, and shows examples of figurative language.moreless
