Tribal Journey Rising Action
Directions On the next slide you will listen to chapter 3 of Tribal Journey. As you listen to it, think about the rising action. Ask yourself: How is this different than the beginning (exposition)? How is this similar to the exposition? How does the author create more tension and suspense in this part?
How is this different than the exposition? We already know about the characters. We already know the setting. We already know that Jason needs to be healed. There is more action. There are a lot of small problems that are getting solved.
How is this similar to the exposition? We keep on learning more about the characters. There are still hints about what will happen later (foreshadowing).
How does the author create more suspense? The author keeps on creating problems for Jason, but he overcomes them. -Jason wasn’t allowed to go to Ron’s house so he had to figure out a plan. -Jason’s dad attacked his mom, so he had to save her. -Jason, his mom, Shauna, and Zak couldn’t go back to their house, so he called Ron and they stayed at his house. These problems are making us readers wonder how he will be a star swimmer. If he has all of these issues going on, how will be able to focus and train?
