Chapter 8 and Chapter 9

Write a summary of the reading.

Answer each comprehension question. Use evidence from the text.

1.What news does Daddy announce at dinner?

2.As her mother’s tiredness continues through the weekend, how does Frannie feel about it?

Answer each analysis question. Use evidence from the text.

1.Describe Frannie’s dad.

2.What lessons has Frannie’s family imparted to her? Have any of them “stuck”?

Analyze the poem by Emily Dickinson.

If I can stop one heart from breaking,

I shall not live in vain;

If I can ease one life the aching,

Or cool one pain,

Or help one fainting robin

Unto his nest again,

I shall not live in vain.

What is the main idea of this poem? What does the author want for her life?

What could the robin be a metaphor for?

How do you think Frannie would interpret this poem? How would she connect it to her life?
