Transcript of All American Slurp
"Meg, do Americans slurp?"
"Sure, all Americans slurp." Setting The setting of a story is a time or a place where the characters are. The setting of this story in the beginning is at the Gleason's dinner table. Shortly after, the setting changes to the Lakeview Restaurant. Near the very end of the story, the setting changes to the street. Point of View Point of view is the way the author is telling the story. For example, there are different types of P.O.V. Here are a few examples: First person P.O.V- This is when the character or narrator is using the key words I, me, my, or mine. Second person P.O.V- This point of view isn't used very often, but it includes the key words you, your, and yours. It can be thought of as the author directly speaking to you. Third person P.O.V- This is when the author or narrator is using names to identify people in the story. For example:
Morgan went to the store on Sunday. "All American Slurp" is written in first person P.O.V. Theme, Mood, and Tone Theme is the author's message, or what the author is trying to get across to you. The theme of this story is that all cultures have different ways of doing things, but in the end, we're all very similar to one another. Mood is the way the story makes you feel when you're reading it. The mood of this story is understanding. At first this may not make sense, but while you're reading, you feel like you're in the narrator's shoes. You feel like you can understand how much she wants to fit in. Tone is the way you imagine the story to sound in your head. The tone of this story is hopeful, because all the narrator wants is to fit in around her new friends around America.
