THE CASTLE IN THE ATTIC

BY ELIZABETH WINTHROP

Your book group will be meeting each week to share what you have read about The Castle in the Attic. You are expected keep up with the assignments and to take active part in group meetings.

Journal responses and published projects are also due on February 18!


In your reading journal, respond to each of these questions with a complete paragraph. (Three or four detailed sentences that answer all parts of the question with reasons and details.) Write "CASTLE IN THE ATTIC RESPONSE" at the top of each page.

1) After completing the first assignment...So far, what has happened in this story that has been fantasy? Name each of those things and what makes you think they are fantasy.

2) After completing the second assignment...What emotions caused William to change Mrs. Philips in the first place? Are the consequences what he had hoped they would be? Support your answer with examples from the story.

3) After completing the third assignment...Think about the character of William. Explain how he has changed over the course of the story and predict what will happen to him next. Give specific examples from the book to support your opinion.


PICK ONE OF THE CHOICES BELOW AS YOUR RESPONSE PROJECT FOR CASTLE IN THE ATTIC.

Whichever choice you make, it must be a fully developed piece of writing, with at least two drafts (rough and final), careful editing for mechanics, creative revising (changes in content), and a plan for adding artwork and publishing your work. Keep your response project in your Writing Collection, since that is what you will be doing in writing for the next few weeks
