The Book Thief
Details from the Exposition
An image from Himmel Street. "The buildings appear to be glued together,mostly small houses and apartment blocks that look nervous. There is murky snow spread out like carpet. There is concrete, empty hat-stand tress, and gray air."-Pg.27
When Liesel has nightmares, Hans calms her down. "Possibly the only good to come out of these nightmares was that it brought Hans Hubermann,her new papa,into the room,to soothe her,to love her." Pg.36
Details from the Rising Action
The mayor's wife's letter to Liesel. " 'When I noticed the first book missing, I thought I had simply misplaced it,but then I saw the outlines of some feet on the floor in certain patches of the light. It made me smile.' " -Pg.369
When Hans has to leave, Liesel doesn't want him to go. "Two hours till goodbye: 'Don't go,Papa.Please.' Her spoon-holding hand is shaking. 'First we lost Max. I can't lose you now,too.' " -Pg.423
Details from the Climax
When Liesel finds Rudy dead after the bombing. " 'Rudy,' she sobbed,'wake up....' She grabbed him by the shirt and gave him just the slightest disbelieving shake.'Wake up,Rudy,' and now, as the sky went on heating and showering ash,Liesel was holding Rudy Steiner's shirt by the front." Pg.535
When Liesel finds her papa dead after the bombing. "Goodbye,Papa,you saved me.You taught me how to read...The book thief wept till she was gently taken away." Pg-538 & 539

Questions for Looking and Discussion
1. Look carefully at the best known frame of Migrant Mother:
• Describe what you see.
• Where does your eye go first? Where does it go next? Why?
• What can you tell about how this image was made?
• What do we learn about the people and place in the photograph?
• What is the mood or feeling of the image?
• What details reveal that information?
• What do we know for certain?
• What assumptions might we have made?
• Can you tell how the photographer feels about her subjects?
Use Short Texts
The Common Core standards suggest several genres of short text, both literary and informational, that can work at the elementary level. Many kinds of traditional literature—folktales, legends, myths, fables, as well as short stories,poetry, and scenes from plays—enable and reward close reading. For informational works, try short articles,biographies, personal narratives, and even some easier primary-source materials, such as Martin Luther King Jr.'s "IHave a Dream" speech, the preamble to the U.S. Constitution, or sayings from Poor Richard's Almanac. Appendix B of the Common Core State Standards notes numerous picture books that can be used with younger readers.

When students are learning a process, such as how to search for a recurring theme, reading short texts allows them to make more passes through the entire sequence of a text. It could take weeks or even months to read through a 100-page novel to identify a theme or concepts related to the text as a whole. A short text of a page or two can bedigested in one lesson
