Each week, you will complete a reading reflection journal. To complete this journal, you will need to review ALL of the daily jots you have collected through the week. Read your jots and think about how your thinking about your book has changed since you wrote them.

What did you used to think?

What has changed about your thinking?

What new information have you learned?

How did that new information influence or alter your thinking?


Use this idea to guide your reflection writing:

I used to think blah blah blah because blah blah blah,

but now I think yada yada yada because yada yada yada.


Be sure you include SPECIFIC DETAILS from the text and from your schema to support your new ideas. Include PAGE NUMBERS and be VERY DESCRIPTIVE when explaining the text information that supports your thoughts.

When Daren, Kyles arch enemy and his family fly on a plane for the first time together to a hotel called the Frontier lodge in the Oregon coast, both of their parents leave them there because they are bording a cruise for the salesman of the month aword because they have been nomonated for it, an unexpected earthquake hits the Fisher beach the area they are staying in. Soon, when it afects their hotel area, quickly things turn bad into worse, smoke rises and fire is starting to get brued in. Kyle and his younger sister Beebee quicky act, cover their faces with wet towels and struggle to get out because somting has blocked their door, the lock shifter was cought. When Kyle finnaly opens the door, the bump into a uncosious body with frimilier buff body and thick hair, it was Daren. Kyle is genouris enoughf to feel his pulse and realize he isn't dead. He tried to carry him down the stairs because he wouldn't leave anyone behind even in a life situation. He strugles to drag him stair by stair flight by flight, just on the second floor Daren starts to moan and wake up, "HEY' he bellows "get away from me!' Kyle tries to tell him that there is a fire, once he does, he imedietly panics and shooves Beebee out of the way and runs off. This made me think that eventhough, that Kyle truely hates Daren, he still had the genourocity to help him downstairs. I had always thought that ever since that event took place, he was being weird about helping him but now I think that he is always kind to whoever he meets, he did that because he is always and responsable. When he draged him down 2 flights of stairs that was not just unusual, he would do that to anyone. I infere that Kyle liked him enoughf to help him. I thought that because Klye is couragious in the inside. In my schema, not everyone would make their own chances of their life greater in a situation like that, Kyle did. When I found out that Kyle was always kind to ANYONE I thought why Daren? He helped Daren because he may risk his life to keep anyone safe. He did it to him because even he is on the bottom of the list he helped him because they trusted strangers Norm and Josie and tried to help them further from the tsunami and did the same for Daren.

Recently, when Brian who has been in a tragic plane crash and has to put his survivle skills to the test, and gatherin up resources like rasberrys and water from the lake to cup and drink, he now has to face a very important tool of survivle, fire. He tries to think was does he know from real life to make fire becuase he is just a city boy when he first came out into the canidian wilderness and tries to use his knolage from T.V. and his scince class that realates to buiding a fire. He has ran out of time for today to build a fire, so he stores himself in his shelter to rest because he needs the energy to create a fire to survive longer. He is sleeping for about an hour or two ans hears russiling outside and he doesn't do anything about it untill he is anoyed and chucks his hatchet. Light comes out of the darkness and a spark has been created in his shelter. He has missed his target but atleast knows where he can get a source for fire. He tries to ignite it by lighting the wrinkeld 20 dollar bill with the sparkes and sees if it spreads. It didnt't work. Later, he tries to light it with little twigs. It takes him all night to gather wood. On a tree he spots there is eggs and he imiedity cracks them and chews all six eggs. When he had the energy he was ready to make it. It started out as a tiny flame. He needed to feed it more but he had enoughf wood for a night or two so,he realaxes and calles himself rich. This makes me think that he says he says hes rich and means that he has alot of supplize to last him a while. He is just very joyful that he has been poor to now just
