Transcript of No Promises In The Wind- Pat, Jon, Max, and Ben

By: Jon, Pat, Max, and Ben No Promises in the Wind Historical Fiction is a story based
on a true event but has made up characters.
Historical Fiction tells how a character
would have dealt with a certain event
in history. Historical Fiction For example:
Say a unicorn is involved with the civil war and an author writes about
how the unicorn took Abe Lincoln on a ride to the White house. That is an
example of Historical Fiction SETTING is the time, place, and sets a mood for the book. The setting for No Promises in the Wind was mostly in Chicago, Louisiana, Nebraska and took place in the 1930s . It sets a mood of despair and hunger. POINT OF VIEW Point of View is from what
prospective the novel
is written from.
If the story was written in Joey's point of view
and not Josh's point of view the story would be
a lot different. It would change because Joey had
very different prospective. EXAMPLE: "I noticed after a few
weeks I was thinking of nothing but
food." Characterization is how the author
identifies the characters in the the book
from protagonists and antagonists. Characterization Protagonists are Lonnie, Joey and Josh. The antagonists are
Stefan, Mom, and the Rail Road Bullies. Protagonists and Antagonists Connecting to the Text Themes Pat's theme My theme was what you want isn't always what you need. I think this relates because Josh did what he wanted but to stay with his family was what he needed. He kept on going further and further away from his family. He kept on doing what he wanted but didn't need. The bible verse was Romans 7 :19. It says "For what I do is not the good I want to do; no , the evil I do not want to do- this I keep on doing. Jon's Theme Never give up Pat's text Never give up! The Bible passage I did was Galatians 6:9 "let us not become weary in doing good,for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up" The theme that you should never give up is shown in the passage Galatians 6:9 because it says even when its hard we must keep going and if we do we shall be rewarded. This story shows me that I should be thankful for what I have instead of what I don't have it also showed me the importance of family and how much it can effect you. Jon's text I think the story relates to my life because it helps me remember that my family is the most important part of my life. It also helps me remember how lucky I am to have a family that can provide for me. Max's Theme My Theme is to forgive people. My bible verse is Ephesians 4:32 - "And be kind to one another, compassionate, forgiving one another as God has forgiven you in Christ." My theme is a sacrafice in the long term
will pay off in the long term. Ben's Theme Max's text My theme is a sacrifice will
pay off in the long term. The story relates to my life because I may sometime think my parents don't love me but they will always love me no matter what and my family is most important. But I am very lucky for what I have like my school, clothes, food and water. My bible verse is Luke 4: 5-13
The devil tempts Jesus and he does
not move a muscle. Ben's text I should be thankful for everything I have. It is
an eye opener to see what real poverty looks like
and my cousin died at 19 and I really felt what Josh
and Joey felt. Characters Dynamic/ Static Characters The static Characters are characters
that do not go through a major change in the novel. Dynamic Characters go through a
dramatic change in the novel. Some examples of static characters are
Joey, Mom, Lonnie, Pete Harris, and Edward
C. Some dynamic characters are Josh and
Stefan. Conflict Internal and External
Conflicts Some examples of Internal conflicts are
Josh messing with his brain by leaving and
dealing with Joey leaving. The difference between internal and external conflict is that internal is happening inside him and external is happening outside of him. An external conflict is a conflict
that either is between a character
and another character or outside force. Some examples of exte Some examples of external conflict is
Josh .vs. his dad and also verses the
Great Depression. Thank You for watching!!!!
