Q. Why do you think Jake and Ethan call Kara “Two Wooden Planks?”
Ans. Her full name is Kara Wood. She is dyslexic like her father Jim Wood. Secondly, she is a slow learner and does not comprehend the concepts taught in the class. She seems dull, sluggish and lifeless like a log of wood. Jake and Ethan leave no chance to ridicule and torture her by calling her “Kara Two Planks” means she is dull, slow and dumb.
Q. How did Kara react when Jake informed her about the sale of Moana?
Ans. She was in a state of shock. She had lost her mum and now she was going to lose Moana as well. She felt so miserable, helpless and pitiful that her eyes welled with tears. When Jake said that they would buy Moana and chop her for firewood, she lost her temper and hit the hard-covered Bible on his nose. Resultantly, Jake’s nose started to bleed profusely.
Q. What is dyslexia? What are its symptoms?
Ans. Dyslexia is a learning disorder that mainly affects reading and writing skills. Dyslexic children/people have problems identifying and recognising speech sounds. Also called reading disability, dyslexia affects areas of the brain that process language. Dyslexia is about information processing and dyslexic children might have difficulty processing and remembering information they see and hear, which can affect learning and the acquisition of literacy skills.
It is initially very difficult for parents to detect any signs of dyslexia in their child before he/she goes to school. Once your child reaches school, his/her child’s teacher might feel something wrong with the child’s academic performance. The intensity of the situation varies, but the condition often becomes evident as a child starts learning to read.
Signs that a young child may be at risk of dyslexia include:
- The child starts talking a bit late
- Learning new words slowly
- Problems remembering or naming letters, numbers and colours
- The child has a problem learning and remembering and retaining nursery rhymes
Problems dyslexic children face in school
Once your child is in school, dyslexia signs and symptoms may become more apparent, including:
- Problems processing and learning what he or she hears
- Difficulty finding the right word or constructing answers to questions
- Problems remembering the sequence and arrangement of things
- Unable to sound out the pronunciation of an unknown word
- Difficulty spelling and further unable to score in dictation tests
- Taking a lot of time to complete an assignment
- Dyslexic children hesitate to read aloud or in front of a large audience to save themselves from humiliation.
