HELP! Summative 4 Uglies!
« on: May 26, 2010, 05:52:16 AM »

Grade 9 Summative on the Uglies book(not the whole series) . Ya im not REALLY suppose to do this at home...but im a special circumstance...
ANY INFO. or ANY Ideas are great! Answer ANY or ALL (god, i would love you forever)

1. Title >> explain the meaning of the title in a few sentences.

2. Setting >> describe city where most action takes place.

3. Characters >> Give 3 personality traits of the main character with proof to back it up (she PREFERS quotes).

4. Plot >> I need to know WHAT is the main event of the exposition (what?), initial incident, climax, falling action.

5. Conflict >> identify and explain ONE major conflict in the novel. Be sure to tell what type of conflict it is, provide support, explain how it was resolved.

6. Theme >> Identify ONE theme in the novel. Support it with 3 examples.

Thanks! Remember my everlasting love...wink wink

Did you read the book?
1. The title "Uglies" means that it is about the escapades of an Ugly.
2. Most of the action is in the Smoke, a secret rural settlement with crude barracks and buildings, lots of campfires.
3. One trait is gullibility. Tally actually thinks that she can go to the smoke for Dr. Cable and then she will be left alone. Another is that she has wacked out priorities. She thinks that being pretty, even after all Shay has told her, is worth betraying her best friend. A third is that she is resourceful. She managed to survive the "attack" of the rangers by hiding in the water.
will send more later!

I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

Tally = conflicted. She wants to be pretty, and wants to be ugly. Wants to help Shay, wants to help Dr. C. Etc.

I would say she is somewhat of a free spirit. a gilr who is down to earth and very caring. she can let her emotions get to her, but is very strong.

while she appears strong, she shows vulnerability and indeciciveness

The setting = time and place...
Time is 300 years from now.
Don't forget to mention Shay!
That would be fail.
