What is this?
  • A signpost – an object or idea that helps you know where you’re going or what you should be doing while on the route.
  • Think of reading a novel as something similar to being on a road.
  • The author has already paved the road for you, but it is up to you to read the signs to figure out where you should go and what you should do.

Stop and Notice and Note
  • When you’re reading and a character (who is probably older and a lot wiser) takes the main character aside and gives serious advice, you should ask yourself:
  • What’s the life lesson, and how might it affect the character?
  • Whatever the lesson is, you’ve just found a theme.

How might this affect the character?

When I read this, it reminds me of advice from my mom telling me to treat people how I want to be treated.

  • As you talk, find other examples and jot down an answer to this question on the side of your paper: How might this advice affect the character?
  • Look for Calpurnia’s example to Scout in Chapter 3.
    • Find a way to connect it to the board. THINK THEMES!
  • --share out
then find other examples with your partner from chapters 1 6
Then find other examples with your partner from Chapters 1-6.
  • 1. What did you SEE that told you this was going to be a moment for advice? HOW did you know?
  • 2. What advice/insight did the wiser character share?
    • DON’T just write quote. WHAT exactly did the character try to tell the person in other words?
  • 3. How do you think this will affect the main character (or the one who received the advice)?
    • HOW did/will this moment change the character?
    • RELATE to a THEME or CONCEPT.
