No Promises In The
Wind Presentation Project By: Bryan Kent, Tony Zinno, Joe Petty, and Samuel Valenti Setting Setting is the time and place of where a novel takes place in the story, it also sets the mood of the story. It also includes dress, speech, and transportation. Setting can also include dialect.
Tony- " I was thinking of nothing but food." " I don't have a cent."
Bryan- " In the midst of very difficult months at home." " Question of the next meal is always with me."
Sam- " Hopes of finding a job dwindled." "They must be suffering these days."
Joe- "No interest except finding food." " Cause I was forced to beg." Historical Fiction Historical Fiction is a story set in a past time period using a real setting and time. Normally the characters are fiction. Occasionally a character who is a real historical figure. The main characters, like Josh and Joey are fake but, there are two real characters. Historical Fiction makes for a great story. Point Of View The point of view of this story is by Josh. It is first person point of view because Josh is telling the story the way he sees it. An example of this is "I wish you could come hear us. Howie and I are pretty good lately". If the point of view changed from Josh the story would change because you would not get the conflict between Josh and his dad. It would also change because you would not get the full story. Characterization Characterization is how an author creates the characters and
their personality in the story. There are direct and indirect characterization in the story. Direct characterization is when the author tells the exact personality of the character. An example of direct characterization is "Dad is terribly proud". This is direct because it directly tells that Josh's dad is very proud. Indirect characterization is when the author makes you infer the characters personality in what is going on. An example of this is "Oh great" he yelled shrilly "Pete Harris needs another pianist like we need another cut in wages." This is an example of indirect characterization because you have to infer that the dwarf is mad at Pete Harris. The main traits of the protagonist are that he is stubborn, he is confident, he is proud, and he is independent. One example of pride shown by Josh in the book is that he lets Joey do all the begging, because he's too proud too beg. An example of him being confident is that he left home because he was confident that he could survive on his own. You can tell that Josh is independent because he wants to do a lot on his own. Dynamic/ Static Characters Conflict The difference between internal conflict and external conflict is that internal conflict occurs inside a character and external conflict occurs outside the character and in nature or somewhere outside the character. One example of internal conflict is when Josh gets the note from his parents and he is struggling with himself whether to open it or not. An example of external conflict is when Josh and Joey are struggling to stay alive in the cold winter. Theme Connecting to the text Bryan- This story teaches me about my own life because it shows that you sometimes have to do things that are hard. Joe- It connects to my life because it reminds me that life will get hard but, you have to keep on fighting and never give up no matter what happens. Tony- I can connect to the text because I like to be independent. Sam- I connect to the text because it reminds me of the stuggles of everyday life. It shows that some people are less fortunate then us. I also connect with the novel because I want to be independent, but I must respect my elders. No promises in the wind Express No Promises In the Wind Express - My theme was that even in hard times you would find people who are kind. My Bible verse was Luke 21: 1-4 "As he looked up he saw wealthy people putting their offerings into the treasury and he noticed a poor widow putting in two small coins. He said "I tell you truly, this poor widow has put in more than all the rest; for those others gave from their surplus wealth ,but she, from her poverty, has offered her whole livelihood." - My theme is always be grateful for what you have no matter how small of things you have. My bible verse is Ephesians 5:20- "Giving thanks always for all the things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ." Tony- - The theme from my perspective is forgiveness. Acts 10: 43 "to him all the prophets bear witness that everyone who believes in him will recieve forgiveness of sins through his name." The characters that changed during the story are Josh, and Mr. Grondowski. Josh changed because he began to understand why his dad was mad at him and he started to forgive him. Mr. Grondowski changed because he began to understand that he was being unfair to Josh. They both learned that they where very much alike. They both learned to listen to one another at the end of the story and taught them to not fight anymore. A dynamic character was Josh. Some static characters were Howie, Lonnie and Emily. An idea or message that expresses an author's feelings or raises a question about life. You can find the theme of a book by thinking deeply about what the story is telling you. You can figure out the theme easily that way if you think of the question or thought that you think the author is trying to tell you about. The theme of the story for me is never give up, even when times are rough. A bible verse that goes with this theme is Psalm 31:24 "Be strong and let your hearts take courage, all you who wait for the Lord". Sam Joe Bryan
