What specific events in the story helped you develop these responses? Do not just add in a quote – you must tie in the evidence so it helps support your reasoning and thoughts.To help you work through these questions a bit, here is how you can approach them and begin thinking about your response.What is the author’s important message?A message is usually something the author wants the reader to learn or take away from the story but is often not written explicitly. There is no right or wrong “message.”Explain how this text transformed you as a reader.Transforming requires the addition of your own personal thoughts, ideas and connections. Thus, these novels can cause different transformation for different people. Remember, we will all react and respond to texts differently. This response should come from the connections you made with the text and how you saw the story/stories unfold.Asking yourself these two questions can help you begin to see the transformative process: What did this novel do for you as a reader? What are you still thinking about after finishing the book?
