The second paragraph does not reveal that much. The last paragraph reveals A LOT!! Foreshadowing is is a hint or clue to what might happen later in a story.
I have read the book for the first time ever and it was absolutely fantastic! The text is fiction. Sir and the text is fiction because it never happened and in my opinion is crazy and way to harsh.
The setting is in a deserted desert like area and remains there the whole story. The conflict is that a bunch of teenagers have been arrested for doing something wrong such as stealing something or breaking into cars etc. All the boys have been given an option whether or not they want to go to jail or a detention center called Camp Green Lake where the bad boys go to build character by digging holes all day in extremely hot weather.
But as soon as he gets there, he realizes this is no camp. Anyways, the owner of the area is a woman who everyone calls The Warden and another man who everyone calls Mr.

Reader Response Blntz and Bean April 13, One word i feel is essential is inference because it means that readers go beyond the surface meaning of text. I am such a strong believer in teaching chiidren to read through the text and figure out the underling meaning. it makes reading so much more rewarding and filling. Feb 11, · February 12, at pm While I was reading your blog, I could see your understanding of the text evolve. I like that you mentioned that we don’t know what the people around us are hiding in their pockets and jackets.
Stanley is put in group D. The other boys and Stanley have to wake up at Reader responce february in the morning, eat breakfast and then dig holes 5 feet wide and 5 feet deep. After all that I finally decided to read it but i only read a couple of pages.
I feel sorry for Zero that nobody likes him and teases him.
But I really want to meet all the characters and just chat with them because it would be a great opportunity to understand how everyone feels about life at the camp.
Zero, Stanley and The Warden are three people that I think are interesting and play a big role in this book.
Zero is not much of a main character but he has a bigger role than the other boys in the camp other then Stanley, Zero, as I explained was never able to go to school or get taught because when he was little, his mom just abandoned him in a park so from then on, his future fell down the drain his dad was never mentioned and he has no family.
The Warden, on the other hand was evil and just kept forcing the boys to dig holes just because she was looking for something.
Eventually there are hundreds of holes everywhere and you cant walk a meter without avoiding a hole. The Warden in my opinion is also an important person because she is very bad and she rules the whole area and she has this snake poison in her nail polish so when someone like Mr.
Sir makes her angry, she scratches that person and puts a very painful but not deadly poison into their skin and then that person begins to scream in awful pain for a while.
Kate Barlow is just her actual name. Another reason I liked Zero so much is because for example Stanley spells out a word and Zero really thinks hard to find out and then all of a sudden after a while when the topic is completely changed he just says the word aloud.
The thing about this book that I really want to remember and admire the most out of all other books is that this is the only book I have ever read that really relies on a major event that happened in the past to keep the story so live and up and running. This is how this saying in my opinion applies to this part; a little more than halfway through the book, Zero is really badly made fun of and takes a shovel and slams it into one of the counselors face and then runs away.
When Stanley begins to worry that he died, he goes out to look for him because he thinks that in the scorching heat he surely would have been fried to a crisp after a couple of days.
Now this is where the author really shocked and took me in the book, when Mr. To make a long story short Zero is found safe and sound so they go back to the camp and start to dig during midnight and finally find the treasure!!!!
All that illegal work for nothing huh? There were many parts where the author shocked me, like the one stated above.
One of them was that if you try real hard and believe in yourself, you can accomplish almost anything and get out of almost any situation, like nothing is impossible.
This book also won an award: I think it deserves it. This book was really effective in expressing emotion, the emotions were very real and it seemed just like it actually happened or as if it was based on a true story.Reading Response Strategy - The Curriculum Corner says: For some other ideas to support your teaching you might want to check out our post on Reading Response Letters.

Each emergent reader practices several sight words and reinforces concepts such as days of the week, positional words, number. Reader-response criticism is a school of literary theory that focuses on the reader (or "audience") and their experience of a literary work, in contrast to other schools and theories that focus attention primarily on the author or the content and form of the work.

When I turn on an e-ink e-reader, I want to resume where I last left off. considered the Kobo Aura One but time and time again I saw negative reviews on he internet due to slow interface and responce and I dont wanna deal with such a device.
Reader-Response theorists helped dethrone New Criticism from its privileged position by, well, drawing attention to the reader. They also helped pave the way for a lot of other literary schools that followed in the s and s, like Poststructuralism and New Historicism.
