Take a Journey Through a Book
Contrasts and Contradictions
When a character does something that contrasts (differs) with what you'd expect or contradicts his earlier acts or statements,
STOP
and think:


How might this change things?
Why did he/she act or feel that way?
Aha Moment
When a character realizes, understands or finally figures out something,
STOP
and think:

How might this change things?
How will this realization be important in the story?
Tough Questions
When a character is confused or uncertain and either asks himself/herself (or someone else might ask him/her) a very hard question,
STOP
and think:

What does this question make me wonder about?
How is this question important to the story?
How will his/her answer affect the events in the story?
Analogy
Just like signs on the road directing us on what to do and where to go, authors give us signs that help us know what to look for in the story.

"If we don't know to look for the signposts authors give, and don't know what they mean, we might breeze past them and find ourselves of the road and in the ditch" (Beers & Probst, 105).

Signpost Review Game!
Work with your team to review the signposts.
Analyze the videos, pictures and excerpts to determine which signposts they represents.
On your whiteboard write the name of the signpost and a piece of evidence to support it.
