Step 2. In the left-hand column, students record direct quotations (with page number), summaries and/or clear references to the text. In the right-hand column, students write their reactions to the selected text.

10 Step 3 In the right-hand column, students must: 1. make predictions, ask questions 2. draw connections between the literature and their personal experiences. 3. analyze the work, showing how the passage chosen demonstrates the use of a literary device such as allusion, conflict, characterization, irony, tone, etc. 4. draw a connection between the passage chosen and another literary work or piece of art, music or film.

11 The quote: For the future chapters, you should come every day with a quote you have chosen from your reading to respond to. Today, I will give you some choices that can serve as examples for your future choices. Choose a quote with the journal response prompts in mind.

12 Chapter 1-3 Quotes Chapters 1 - 3: "When it comes to foster parents, there are only two kinds: the good but messy people who are trying to help kids or the absolute welfare vultures who like to cash government checks every month." (8) "I'm fighting and kicking because that's what I do. It's how I'm wired. It's my programming. I read once that if a kid has enough bad things happen to him before he turns five, he's screwed for the rest of his life." (17) "I recognize his voice. I know this guy. He's arrested me a few dozen times. He's always been pretty cool. I trust him not to hurt me, so I calm down a little. 'Officer Dave,' I say. 'It's good to see you again.' " (17) "I measure men by the content of their character, not the color of their skin, and I find all of them are assholes." (27)
