Signpost Lesson 1:
Contrasts and Contradictions

Definition of
Contrasts and Contradictions
"C&C"

A character does or says something unexpected, surprising or "out of character."
A character does something out of society's norms.
Finding the "C&C" is just the beginning!
Once you find the Contrast/Contradiction, you need to
consider its meaning
.
Reflect
and
discuss
to unpack the possibilities!
Ask yourself
"Why is the character acting this way?

Here is the C&C Anchor Question:
Why would the character
do this or say this?
Examples from Texts and Life
Answers to C&C Anchor Question

Overview of the Lesson


Contrasts & Contradictions Reflection Journal
Write about a Contrast and Contradiction in your life. This happens when you or someone you know does something totally unexpected, out of the ordinary, or just plain bizarre. Did you find out why the person was doing or saying it? What was the story behind the action? If you don't know the story, how and why did the behavior contradict the person's usual behavior? You can write about yourself or an animal if you wish.
