The Outsiders What point of view was used? Explain Reading skill: make inferences

Make logical guesses, or inferences, about things that are not directly stated. Base your inferences on details in the story and on your own knowledge and experiences. Think . . . If a movie is based on a book that was told in the first person, what might the

screenplay writer have to do or consider? Third-Person Omniscient Point of View An omniscient, or all-knowing, narrator tells the story using the pronouns he, she, it, and they is aware of what all the characters in the story are thinking and doing

As you read A Retrieved Reformation, notice when you have more information than the characters do. Third-Person Omniscient Point of View The guidance counselor felt relieved as he read the teachers note. The student sitting in front of him, nervously

wondering what was to happen to her, would get a second chance after all. How do you know that the point of view is third-person omniscient? Predict When readers predict, they combine information from the text with their prior

knowledge to guess what might happen next. Predict how the student in the example above will feel when she hears the news. Vocabulary Study As I read each sentence, listen for the

red word and clues to its meaning. Together discuss possible meanings of the word. Vocabulary Study 1. A loud noise caused the horses to balk. Their refusal to move slowed him down. 2. Jimmy is required to serve only part

4. Only the eminent and world-famous detective Ben Price could ever hope to capture Dandy Jimmy Valentine. Vocabulary Study 5. For a master criminal, he certainly behaves genially. He always has a pleasant smile for everyone, even for the police trying to catch him.

6. Although prison is meant to rehabilitate criminals and prepare them to return to society as more honest citizens, it often falls short of its goal. Vocabulary Study 7. He received a light sentence for his crimes. The members of the jury found

him too charming to hand down more severe retribution. 8. He used to saunter down the street as if he did not have a care in the world. He looked like any other young man out for a stroll. Vocabulary Study 9. Unperceived by anyone, Jimmy had

already taken out his tools. By the time the family noticed him, he was ready to begin drilling. 10. For a year he led a virtuous life. He was a model citizen and obeyed the law. A Retrieved Reformation Predict based on title

http://youtu.be/Hw320Zj8BBM Page 226 In O. Henrys A Retrieved Reformation, decision-making plays an important role in the storys development. As in life,

these decisions affect events, conflicts, and other characters. Three decisions in the story deserve close examination: Jimmys decision to go straight and open a shoe store in Elmore. Jimmys decision to reveal himself in order to free Agatha from the safe. Detective Ben Prices decision to pretend not to know Jimmys true identity. To evaluate these decisions, identify alternatives to each. In

your opinion, do the characters make the right decision in each case? Explain why in a discussion with a group of classmates.
