Ann Is Auditory, Part 1
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     Ann's English teacher, Mrs. Smith, passed out a novel. "We are a little behind in our reading this year," her teacher said. "We have to catch up. I want to be done with this novel in two weeks. Your assignment tonight is to read the first ten chapters. We will have a quiz on them tomorrow at the beginning of class."
 
2     Ann looked at the table of contents. She almost cried. All the chapters were around 12 pages long. That meant she had to read about 120 pages tonight. Mrs. Smith saw the worry on Ann's face. She asked Ann to stop by her desk after class. "Uh, oh," Ann thought to herself, "am I in trouble?" She hoped the bell would never ring.
 
3     Of course, the bell did ring. Ann stopped by Mrs. Smith's desk. Mrs. Smith asked, "What's the matter, Ann? You looked like you were going to cry when I gave the reading assignment. Don't you like to read?"
 
4     "I love to read," Ann told her, "but I don't remember what I read. Especially details like the ones you always ask on the quizzes. And it's hard for me to concentrate on reading for a long time like I will have to do tonight."
 
5     "I see," Mrs. Smith said. "I've noticed that you haven't been doing well on the quizzes. I just assumed you weren't doing the reading."
 
6     "I read every word," Ann told her, "I just don't remember anything I've read. My mind wanders a lot. I have to reread paragraphs I've already read. It makes me crazy."
 
7     "Do you like to listen to music?" Mrs. Smith asked.
 
8     "I love music, especially hip-hop," Ann told her teacher.
 
9     "I bet you can remember every word of your favorite song," Mrs. Smith challenged.
