“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.”- Dr. Seuss
Contrast & Contradictions
Aha Moment
Tough Questions
Again & Again
Memory Moment
Words of the Wiser
What is a contradiction?
When a character says or does something that’s opposite (contradicts) what he/she has been saying or doing all along
Contrast & Contradictions
What do we do, as a reader, when we come across a contradiction?
Ask yourself: Why would the character act or feel the way that they do?

Now let's try something a little different.....
When you're reading and the character asks a really difficult question.
Stop and ask yourself.....
What does this question make me wonder about?
Also called an internal conflict.
Think about it this way.....
You hear about a party but you aren't invited. You ask yourself, "Why'd I get left out?"
Suddenly a character realizes, understands, or finally figures something out.
Ask yourself.....
How might this change things?
Moment when you realize something, and that realization, in some way, changes our actions or beliefs.
What does it mean?
A character (who is probably older and a lot wiser/smarter) takes the main character aside and gives serious advice
Ask yourself.....
What's the life lesson and how might it affect the character?
1. What advice/knowledge does Dumbledore give to Harry? What is the life lesson?
2. What does Harry do with this advice?
Harry's tough question: Why couldn't Voldemort kill me?
1. What Tough Question is Simba facing?
2. What advice does Raffiki give? What is the life lesson?
3. What does Simba do with this advice?
"The Suncreen Song"- a graduation speech set to music
What life advice is the speaker giving?
What does it mean?
When you notice a word, phrase, object, or situation mentioned over and over.
Ask yourself....
Why does this keep showing up again and again?
What does it mean?
When you're reading and the author interrupts the action to tell you a memory
Ask yourself....
Why might this memory be important?
The flashbacks tell you about the theme, conflict, or might foreshadow what will happen later in the story.
Now you try:
Write your own Memory Moment. Start with the "now" and make a flashback. You can tell the memory moment to someone else or use your inner thoughts.

Be sure to include what leads up to the memory moment and what follows it. Your classmates should be able to know/say why you used the memory moment and why it was important.

Here are some ways to start (feel free to make up your own as well):
1. You are explaining to a teacher why you don't have something done
2. You tell a friend how you got a scar
3. Reflecting on what you did over the weekend
4. Thinking back to something you did as a kid
5. "What I did over the summer....."


Where Is the Love?

By The Black Eyed Peas

What's wrong with the world, mama
People livin' like they ain't got no mamas
I think the whole world addicted to the drama
Only attracted to things that'll bring you trauma
Overseas, yeah, we try to stop terrorism
But we still got terrorists here livin'
In the USA, the big CIA
The Bloods and The Crips and the KKK
But if you only have love for your own race
Then you only leave space to discriminate
And to discriminate only generates hate
And when you hate then you're bound to get irate, yeah
Badness is what you demonstrate
And that's exactly how anger works and operates
Now, you gotta have love just to set it straight
Take control of your mind and meditate
Let your soul gravitate to the love, y'all, y'all

People killin', people dyin'
Children hurt can you hear them cryin'?
Can you practice what you preach?
And would you turn the other cheek?

Father, Father, Father help us
Send us some guidance from above
'Cause people got me, got me questionin'
Where is the love? (Love)
