The character of Annie’s mother is developed mainly through Annie’s descriptions of her. As the narrator, Annie presents selected memories of her mother’s actions.

ANALYZE STORY ELEMENTS: PACING

Lines 378 - 384

pacing throughout. In other words, scenes with a lot of action or intense emotion move along quickly, while sections that feature description or reflection move more slowly. Read lines 378 – 384. Is the pacing of this scene fast or slow? How does the author create this pace for readers?

Slide20

ANALYZE WORD CHOICE

Lines 389 - 404

Authors choose words with particular

connotations, or associated feelings, to convey the precise meaning and tone that they intend. For example, “She stormed into the room” conveys a different meaning than “She walked into the room” because stormed

has connotations of anger.

Read lines 389 – 404, in which Annie says goodbye to her mother. Note words with strong connotations. What do these word choices reveal about Annie’s relationship with her mother?

Slide21

ANALYZE WORD CHOICE

Lines 413 - 414

this moment?
