    2. Reading Response – see handout /5 marks
  • 5. Reading Response (Part 1)
    Throughout both novels the protagonist and other characters often make serious or profound statements about people or life. For example,
    Junior: “I think the world is a series of broken dams and floods, and my cartoons are tiny little lifeboats.” (p. 6)
    Christopher: “. . . loving someone is helping them when they get into trouble, and looking after them, and telling them the truth. . .” p. 87
    Take a few moments now to see if you can locate one or more of these. Write them down on the paper provided.
  • 6. Philosophical Statements
    True Diary / Curious Dog
    Written on board; not transcribed
  • 7. Reading Response (Part 2) 15 minutes
    Pick one of these philosophical statements from your novel and write a brief personal response or reflection. You may choose to agree, disagree, explain how it relates to the character’s experience in the story, or how it relates to your own experience.
