I found the passage, Once Upon a Time, to be a unique but interesting story, even though i did not fully understand the authors reason for writing the article the way she did. I found the way that she wrote the beginning of the story like a fairy tale was unnecessary. To help me understand the story i used the reading strategy of rereading a few major parts of the story to allow me to get a better understanding. I believe that my strengths in reading analysis and comprehension are that I read slowly and carefully, allowing me to remember important information. My weaknesses are that i sometimes don't realize or create connections between characters.
