The Notorious Benedict Arnold
Transcript of The Notorious Benedict Arnold
He needed all of it. He needed all of it, and more." What I Love About This Paragraph: The description of each object is told through many details I love how the author really emphasizes the point on how wealthy Benedict Arnold is = This one sentence was really able to make me infer the theme of the story; be happy with what you have Inferences Continued: On Page 7, it states,"Wrapping his body around the soggy wood, he rose high in the air, then swung upside down as the wheel turned, disappearing underwater. Seconds later he burst up with the wheel, dripping and smiling.
As he rose for another spin, he turned toward the line of people outside the mill. The boys grinned with admiration; the adults were in shock. The best part: they were all looking at him." For this paragraph, I inferred that Benedict Arnold loved attention and would try to do dare devilish things to get it. Compare and Contrast Stories: There was no easy way to find what certain time period the chapter was based on http://www.amazon.com/Traitor-Benedict-Arnold-wanted-Scholastic/dp/B000MQPVB0 http://classroombookshelf.blogspot.com/2012/02/2012-yalsa-award-for-excellence-in.html The Notorious Benedict Arnold: Traitor: The Case of Benedict Arnold Included additional maps for visuals Included additional maps AND pictures for visuals Both: Each chapter included a certain time period that the chapter was based on Talked about Benedict Arnold's whole life through great details. Skipped over some major details and even a few events Both told in third-person Don't just talk about Benedict Arnold Had comments from other people about certain events. Figurative Language: On page 79,it states,"To see a number of famished creatures, more like ghost than men, issuing from a dismal wilderness, with arms in their hands, was the most astonishing site that they had ever beheld." Means that the men looked so hungry and so dead that the people couldn't even recognize them anymore as humans. Also means that the army men had been enduring so much out there Figurative Language Continued: On Page 49, it states,"Benedict Arnold stood in a cemetery on the town green in New Haven, looking down at his wife's fresh grave." I can infer from this sentence that Benedict Arnold's wife Margaret was dead and she died not too long ago. On page 75, it states,"Every one of us shivering from head to foot,"said George Morrison,"as hungry as wolves." This shows that these men really were famished and were so cold on their march On page 144, it states,"Back at home, Arnold was able to catch up on some reading in his favorite subject. "General Arnold and his troops conducted themselves during their action with great firmness and intrepidity," reported the Philadelphia Gazette,"and made a better resistance than could have been expected against a force so greatly superior."
