Contrasts

Ideas to try:
Let students create text dependent questions
1. Find a short text that you think might be challenging
2. Read the selection aloud to students as they follow along or, if appropriate, tell the students to read it on their own.
3. Tell them that as they read they should simply mark those spots where they feel confused, have a question, or wonder about something.
4. Ask them to reread the selection.
5. Pull the class back together and collect the questions that have been generated.
6. Next. ask them to look at the questions they think are the most interesting or important, discuss them, and make notes about their thoughts.
7. Pull the class back together and work through some of the most interesting questions asking for ideas and expand on them.
8. Decide what follow up is needed.

Memory
Moment
Contrasts
and Contradictions
A scene where a character does something different from the others, or
A scene where a character does something different from what he/she did earlier
Why would the character act/feel this way?
Stories to Use

Maniac Magee
The Watson's go to Birmingham

Contrasts
and
Contradictions
Helps students recognize
character development
internal conflict
relationship to the plot

A moment when a character realizes or understands something that up until that point he had not known.
Helps students understand:
character's actions are related to conflict
progression of the plot (ERCFR)
sometimes the theme
How might this change things?
Stories to Use:

Crash by Spinelli

Among the Hidden by Haddix

Esperanza Rising by Munoz Ryan
Readers should be alert for a difficult question the character
asks himself or a trusted other.
This gives insight into internal conflict.
What does this question make me wonder about?
Stories to Use:

A Long Walk to Water by Park

Half and Half (the first chapter) by Namioka

AMong the Hidden by Haddix
Students should be on the look out for a scene in which
a typically older, wiser character offers the main character
important advice.
This advice is often linked to the theme of the story.
What's the life lesson, and how might it affect the character?
Again
and
Again.....
Stories to Use:

Riding Freedom
by Munoz Ryan

Walk Two Moons

Tuck Everlasting

"Thank You, Ma'am"
Readers should recognize when something
is repeated. This will give clues to:
the plot
the characters
the theme

Why does this keep showing up again and again?
Stories to Use:
Hatchet
Bridge to Terabithia
The Giver
Bud, Not Buddy
Maniac Magee
"The Most Dangerous Game"
"The Chaser"
Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry
The Outisders

Be aware of the moment when a character remembers something from the past.
This can help us:
learn more about a character
help identify the theme
show the conflict of the story
or foreshadow something to come
Why might this memory be important?
Stories to Use

Hope Was Here
by Bauer
The Watson's go to Birmingham
Hatchet
