Narrative Text . . .

What does it say?

How does the text say it?

Find examples of figurative language:

(metaphor/simile, descriptive language, symbolism)

Summary of chapter/how did the story advance?

This is your summary

This is the author’s craft & structure

  • The gist/central idea
  • Specific evidence to support
  • Ideas in order of importance
  • Obvious/logical inferences
  • Most important ideas/events
  • What genre does the selection represent?
  • Whose voice did the author choose as the narrator?
  • What are the style, mood and tone?
  • What word choice, imagery and figures of speech (simile, metaphor, alliteration, irony, repetition, personification) does the author use?

What does it mean?

So . . . What does it mean to me?

Make a connection (to a book/movie, your life, current events)

Consider: shifts in character, conflict, dialogue

This is where you make a connection to your life

This is the claim; the author’s intent

  • Text Self:
  • What does this remind me of in my life?
  • How is this different from my life?
  • How does this relate to my life?
  • What were my feelings when I read this?
  • What is the theme/central idea?
  • How is the theme/central idea supported with ideas & details?
  • How does the author use language: dialect, variant spellings, archaic words, formal/informal words to shape the tone and meaning of the piece?
  • How does the author use point of view, style, mood, tone, text features, imagery, figures of speech (simile, metaphor, alliteration, irony, repetition, onomatopoeia, personification) and the lead, to achieve his/her purpose (author’s intent)?
  • Text Text:
  • How is the text similar to other things I’ve read/watched?
  • Have I read something like this before?
  • Text World:
  • What does this remind me of in the real world?
  • How does this relate to the world around me?
  • How is this similar/different to things that have happened
  • around me?
