Hatchet Chapter 9
Chapter 9 • Read with a partner or alone. • Annotate as you read chapter 9. • Answer the questions on the next slide with your partner in your binder as you read.
Chapter 9 • Why is Brian so willing to use money to help start his fire? • What kind of “home” did Brian construct? • How long did it take Brian to build his home? • What key element was still missing that prevented the fire from igniting (getting started)? • Describe how Brian felt when the “nest” finally burst into flames. • How does thinking back to school help Brian get his fire going?
Chapter 9 • Go back to your table. • We are going to share annotations with our groups. • Person #4 is going to be the leader. • Leader: go through the page numbers and ask for annotations like we do in the circle. Follow the same rules on speaking at your table as we do in our sharing circle.
Chapter 9 Now let’s look at a second reading! • Look back to Ch. 8 pg. 75, “his heart hammered” is an example of personification. • Find an example of personification on pg. 82 as I read. • Can you find another example of personification on pg. 87 as I read aloud? • Why does he describe his new “friend” as hungry?
Chapter 9 • Read along on pg. 85 silently as I read aloud. • Why does the word kill mean in this statement, “I would kill, he thought suddenly, for a book of matches.”? • Why does the author use the word “kill”? • What type of figurative language is this: personification, simile, or hyperbole?
Chapter 9 • Look back on page 65. What is the mood of the last paragraph? • Now read pg. 87 silently as I read aloud. “I have a friend…” What do you think the mood of this is? What words make you feel this way? • Brian thinks that the flames are like him. Why does he make this comparison?
