Reading a dialect can be difficult; show readers that it can also reveal fascinating details! They read two extracts from Jane Gardam's The Hollow Land, which is written in a British dialect. Readers answer comprehension questions, comparing the dialect to American English, explaining difficulties they faced while reading, and defining unfamiliar words and phrases. After reading the second extract, they identify the narrator, setting, and text type. Finally, learners connect by writing a description of a place they know well.
