Example

Sheri’s Book Notes
Tuck Everlasting, Natalie Babbitt, pages 1-15
EALR 2.3.1 Cause / Effect

Because Winnie is constantly yelled at, she is thinking she will run away.

For example, while sitting on the lawn, her grandmother yelled, “Don’t sit on that dirty grass.” (p14)This shows she feels she can’t do anything right. She feels caged. She talks to the toad and says she might even have a pet like him. But then she says, “you’d be just the way I am now...cooped up in a cage” (p15).  She doesn’t want the toad to feel the way she does. She feels so badly and so angry at being told what to do that she wants to run away.

Maybe that is what will happen next in the story. She’ll run away to be free from her nagging grandmother.

EALR 2.3.1 Cause / Effect

Question: What cause / effect situations occur in your book? Why are they important to the story?


A- Answer
Because Winnie is constantly yelled at, she is thinking she will run away.
This is important to the story because it shows the mood the character is in and how that is causing her to make a decision to solve what she thinks is a problem. If she runs away, she could be in trouble or get hurt.

B- Back it up with evidence
For example, while sitting on the lawn, her grandmother yelled, “Don’t sit on that dirty grass.” (p14) This shows she feels she can’t do anything right. She feels caged. She talks to the toad and says she might even have a pet like him. But then she says, “you’d be just the way I am now...cooped up in a cage” (p15).  She doesn’t want the toad to feel the way she does. She feels so badly and so angry at being told what to do that she wants to run away.

C- Connection to the story
Maybe that is what will happen next in the story. She’ll run away to be free from her nagging grandmother.
