  16. 16.  The character acts in a way that is contradictory to how he has acted or that contrasts with how we would act or that reveals aContrasts and difference among characters.Contradictions Text Clue: Author shows actions or feelings that we haven’t seen before. Question: Why would the character act (feel) this way?
  17. 17.  Contrasts and Two of the Contradictions Notice and Note  Aha Moments
  18. 18.  The character realizes or comes to understand something thatAh-Ha therefore changes his thinking or his actions  Text Clues  I suddenly realized…  Now I understood why…  It hit me with a force…  I knew what I had to do… Question: How might this change things?
  19. 19. Erin—September, 6th grade“Um, I think that, I think that next, well next. I think that well, I think more is going to happen with her being with them. And then she will probably go home. Because they don’t seem like forever kidnappers.”
  20. 20. Erin—January, 6th grade Here, right when Luke, he decides to go to the house, so he had just been thinking about it, but here, he decided to go, well, I noticed that because he was doing something different, like a contradiction on how he had been acting, and so I noticed that. And that made me think that Luke, he’s like maybe getting braver some. But that’s going to be a problem because he needs to stay hidden. So, I think maybe that what’s going to happen is about him not wanting to stay hidden. Maybe like for the conflict.
  21. 21. Mark—August, 8th grade I guess I think that maybe, I guess that, that something else is going to happen.
  22. 22. Mark—November, 8th grade I stopped here because notice how it said that he had a sad smile. Smiles aren’t sad. I noticed that because it was really a contradiction and I wondered why he would be sad and smiling. I think that the Giver is smiling because he’s still trying to make Jonas feel good about this assignment but he also knows something that Jonas doesn’t know. This part made me think that something important is finally going to happen that’s about Jonas finding out something.
  23. 23. Megan—October, 7th gradeMegan: Miss—look! It’s that again and again. The story of the Denmark king. See, she’s remembering it again. Where was it first? Where was it? Can you find it? I don’t know where it was but this is like the, I don’t know, like it was a lot, that she keeps remembering this story, remember that her dad told her about the Denmark king and how anyone would fight for him?
  24. 24. MeganKylene: Why do you think this keeps coming up again and again?Megan: Because. Because. I think it is because, oh, I know, see how she keeps remembering that anyone would do anything to save him. Oh—this is that foreshadowing. Here it is! This is foreshadowing. Oh my God. It’s right here! Do you think Mrs. Lowry knows she did this?
  25. 25.  A character asks himself or a trusted friend a tough question or tough questions that reveal concerns (internal conflict) the character has.ToughQuestions  Text Clue:  Questions, often asked of self, that can’t be answered  Sometimes offered as statement, “I wonder if…” Question: What does this question make me wonder about?
  26. 26.  The author interrupts the flow of the story by letting the characterMemory remember something.Moment  Text Clue:  “I remember…”  “The memory flooded back…”  “It was a strange memory…”  “She suddenly remembered…” Question: Why might this memory be important?
  27. 27.  An important life lesson is shared with the main character.  Text Clue:Words of  A wiser and often older character sharesthe Wiser sage advice  It is often a quiet scene just between the two characters  The advice might be one line or a longer “lecture” Question:  What’s the advice and how might it affect the character?
  28. 28.  A word or scene or image occurs repeatedly.Again and  Text Clue:Again  Some sort of repetition (a word, an image, a phrase, an event) which may or may not occur in same chapter Question:  Why does this keep happening again and again?
