Beginning Brainstorm for Other Wes Moore


Thinking about the titles

As we discussed in the In the Box/Out of the Box activity, we discussed how authors place a lot of value in the titles they give the chapters and chapter sections in order to facilitate the reader's understanding.

As a way to review your QCOPs of all the chapters, I want you to think about why Moore labelled the sections and the chapters the way he did.  You will be doing this for all three sections, and all eight individual chapters.  

For example, it should look like this:

Part I: Fathers and Angels: Moore chose this title for the sections because…

           1. Is Daddy coming with us?: Moore selected this title because…

           2. In Search of Home: Moore selected this title because…

           3. Foreign Ground: Moore selected this title because…

Part II: Choices and Second Chances: Moore chose this title for the section because…

etc., etc., etc.

Make sure that you do not simply summarize!!!  Be analytical!   Also, please be sure that you use the MLA heading format we discussed today in class.
