Here is how I approached this story for my AP language class:. This focused the class on one of the principal themes of the story and signaled that we are more interested in the ideas than learning complex vocabulary. Students read this on their own. After asking student-generated questions on each section the students were experts. We read this version as a class and I model my surprise at significant details that were left out of the first version. This is also were I pause to wonder about the characters developing familiarity with their quirks before students are faced with the original version of the story.
