The WWA for this week is to either keep reading your Eric Walters book, or to start writing the report.
The formatting went a bit wonky with the transfer from Google Docs. Please ignore all the “1.s”, as the numbers didn’t transfer. Below is the document which was shared to each student’s Google Drive account.
I hope you have enjoyed reading an Eric Walters book. Now, on to the writing portion of the assignment….
For each element of the report, write at least one well constructed paragraph. Give at least one example directly from the text for each section.
Elements to cover:
- Setting: Describe the location and time period for the story, and why the author might have chosen this.
- Character Development: Choose at least two key characters. Discuss their personality traits and how they develop throughout the story.
- Give highlights of the plot. What is the climax of the story? (Climax refers to the point of the story where the tension/ problem reaches its highest point.) What is the resolution? (Resolution refers to how the problem is solved. Resolutions are not always happy.)
- What is the theme of the story? Remember, themes are big ideas that apply to literature and also life…. Themes might include: the importance of family, man vs. nature, good vs. evil, change vs. tradition, lessons learned by adolescents growing up (also known as “coming of age”), love and sacrifice, etc. If you are not sure, google ‘themes in literature’, or ask me.
- Your review. Did you enjoy the book? Would you recommend it to others? Explain, and give specific examples.
