These questions have helped students build great theories. They have been pushing themselves to really ask WHY and think hard about the choices their characters make. This is a very hard concept for students as it involves them to think actively synthesize information they are reading. We also have discussed the importance of using text support and constantly think back to prior events as support for their theories.
This week we will push their minds a little farther and build predictions based on theories as well as predict how the story will unfold based on what we know about story structure.
