Chapter 7: Ideas and Content
So on Monday, I ran to school and grabbed my copy!Love this book! (Brace yourself… I am going to repeat myself). This is the story of 4 people who go to the same park and interact with each other. However, their perspectives are very different. The park looks very different to the characters (and the readers) because of their perspectives.
Technique #2: “Illustrations have positioning perspective: a central image may be pictured from the front, the back, the side, above, or below.”
The text says, “Then his mom called him and he had to go. He looked sad.”
This young boy is sad to say goodbye to the friend he made at the park. I find this picture extremely effective.
Technique #12 “Illustrations may show the perspective of the narrator, so you actually see things through his or her eyes.” The text on this page says,”Of course, the other dog didn’t mind, but its owner was really angry the silly twit.”
Um… Yes! I can see she was angry. She is peering down at me!
I modeled this technique with my students when I wrote about my trip to Lambert’s Restaurant. This was one of the pages from that book. My students and I co-wrote it.
