Transcript of No Promises in the Wind Presenation

NPITW Historical Fiction Why No Promises in the Wind is Historical Fiction. Definition: Is a story with fictional and historical characters. Historical Fiction also consists of both fictional and historical events. No Promises in the Wind has fictional characters like Josh and it has historical characters such as President Roosevelt. It also has historical events like The Great Depression. Definition: Setting Is where the story takes place in a book or movie. Setting is the era in which the book or movie is set in too. Examples of poverty: Josh and Joey run away because there wasn't enough food for them. No Promises in the Wind Setting Josh working to provide for his family. Examples of the Great Depression: The act of creating and developing a character Characterization Indirect Characterization: The author shows the characters actions,speech, thoughts, and how they affect the other characters. Indirect and Direct characterization Direct Characterization: The author states the character traits or characteristics. Example: The year 1932 was not a good one
in which to be 15 years old and close in quarters with a hopeless father. Example: Too few hours of sleep
made me irritable and moody. The point of view from which the story is told is first person point of view. NPINTW The way you can tell is by looking at the main character. If the main character says I, we, or us then the story is told from first person point of view. Example: I really need some overshoes but it would be best if I bought Joey some. The story would change because we would be seeing the story in someone elses perspective. For example when Josh and Joey got in the fight we would've seen how Joey felt instead of how Josh felt. How the story would change? Point of View Conflict DYNAMIC CHARACTERS IN NO PROMISES IN THE WIND: Dynamic and Static Charaters Hannah: I think the theme of NPITW is that the great depression is hard for everyone especially children. Josh is a dynamic character because he changes and grows throughout the whole book. At first he was stubborn and not quite understanding, and towards the end he grew up a little and understood more from being on his own. Holly: I think the theme of NPITW is to be thankful for what you have. NPITW Internal Conflict Example: 2 Examples of conflict from No Promises in the Wind One of the static characters was Lonnie. He didn't experience any change throughout the book. He stayed loving and father-like to the boys. Even know he didn't have a lot. Static Charaters: Hannah: This book taught me about my own life because we have to be thankful for what we have. Connecting to the text Anna: I think the theme for NPITW is everyone makes mistakes and everyone should be forgiven. Anna: This book taught me that i need to have an open mind about things and try to understand what a person might be going through Holly: This book taught me to be kind to others because it could help someone. Bible Verses Hannah: Luke 18 "All things are possible with God". The difference between internal and external conflict is that internal conflict is when a character is fighting against itself. External conflict is when a character is fighting against another character, nature, society, or supernatural/technology, or fate. Holly: Psalm 188:12 Give thanks to the lord for he is good and his mercy endures forver External Conflict Example: Anna: Luke 6:37- "Judge not, and ye shall not be judged; condemn not, and ye shall not be condemn; forgive and ye shall be forgiven. Serena: Matthew 25:40 "Whatsoever you do to the least of my brothers that you do unto me also." Panic hit me finally when neither the shed nor Joey could be found. There wasn't a single lighted window in sight, not a doorway where I could find shelter. I coughed so hard that I finally fell. The effort to get up again was too much. "I guess I'm gonna die," I thought, and stopped trying to do anything about it. "A great guy, Mom, a real great guy. Someone I must always look up too, is that what you're going to tell me?"
"Do you know what he's been through today, Josh? He's stood in line from seven thirty this morning until five tonight to get into a factory over Western Avenue. He didn't have a bite to eat at noon and only had coffee and bread this morning-"
"That's what you had too, isn't it?" Josh said. NO PROMISES IN THE WIND PRESENTATION By: Irene Hunt Serena: I think the theme for NPITW is if you help one person one day you will be provided for the next day. Serena: This book taught me about the past and how we should be happy with what we have now. How you can tell what the theme is You can determine the theme by looking closely at other literary elements involved, such as characterization, setting, events, point of view, tone, irony, imaginary, etc. Presented by: Hannah Ammerman Holly Henkel Anna Stegen Serena Macaraeg Many kids had jobs to provide for their family, because just a little bit of money could help a lot.
