Transcript of LETTERS FROM RIFKA
EX: Saul takes care of Rifka while his family is in America . Saul works shifts when taking care of Rifka , so they both have food to eat. SAUL By Karen Hesse Historical Fiction CHARACTERS POINT OF VIEW The point of view in the story is first person and third person. CONFLICT The conflict of the story was when Rifka got ringworm and lost all of her hair and had to be away from her family for a year.The type of conflict is man vs. self. RISING ACTION The rising action in the story is a Polish family that is living during WW1 ,they travel to different countries to find their way to America for freedom. Along the way the family gets a disease called typhus except Rifka , but that's not all the family has been through, there was plenty of more trouble along the journey.This part of the story is important because it's the main reason of the story that lets the reader know how the family had to transport , what time it takes place, and when the family got to America. CLIMAX The climax of the story is when Rifkas
ring worm got cured but, the doctor
( Mr.Fargate) checked Rifkas papers
and said she had to stay on Ellis island
becuase she had no hair and was not
qualified to be married . FALLING ACTION The falling action is when Ilya had Rifkas Pushkin and Ilya told Rifka to read her poem so ,Rifka did when she read her poem Mr.Fargate aked "did you write that"? Rifka replied" y...yes sir " Mr.Fargate signed Rifkas papers and stated you are now an american Rifka everyone cheered but Rifka had a scratch coming on the top of her head she couldn't help but scratch and then her kerchief fell off the doctor saw a spot on Rifkas head Rifka put the kercief back up but not fast enough the doctor came and took it off of Rifkas head and noticed a small patch of hair , Rifka had her hair back. THEME The theme of the story is bravery .The reason why it's bravery is because it's mostly about a girl
that tries to get to America and along the way she stands up for people, her family, and most of all her self. The tone of the story is a
delicate , yet loud & the mood
of the story is sad, gloomy but, exciting ,and happy at the
same time . The advantages of first point of view is it's the way people generally speak using ''I'', ''We'', or ''Us'' and the disadvantages are the reader might think the writer is unprofessional, or immature . The advantages of third point of view is it can create suspense when used correctly and the disadvantages is it can get boring. RESOLUTION The resolution of the story is that Rifka gets to stay in America, and live with her family, and gets to be an American . QUOTES PUSHKIN VERSE My favorite verse of pushkin is ...In hope in torment ,we are turning toward freedom , waiting her command.... - Pushkin This one is my favorite because to me it
means that even if your just hoping or suffering you'll still fight your way to have freedom.
