When you finish the story, it’s time to fill in the last section of the graphic organizer. Try to answer any new questions that occurred to you while you were reading. Summarize the main events of the plot in your own words. Then, stop and think. How and why have the characters changed during the course of the story? What do their experiences show us about life?
The link below will take you to the graphic organizer you’ll use to explore the layers of meaning in the story, “The Bicycle Girl.” You’ll see that the organizer is divided into three sections: Before Reading, While Reading, and After Reading.CC_ENG3_M3SC_BicycleGirl_GO Graphic Organizer.pdf
