s I was sitting in my GEOMETRY class, solemnly thinking about my party which was on Saturday, my teacher showed us a pair of ASKEW lines on a plane. She went through the lesson in a very TRANSiTORY manner. After she finished with the lesson, she passed back the tests that we had taked last week, When she passed my test back, I stared at it iNCREDULOUS. I walked up to her and explained that I had run out of TiME and I couldn’t finish. She began CONTROVERTiNG about how everybody else seemed to have finish in the given time. I began EXPOUNDiNG about what had happened that day. I told her how my mother had gotten in a car crash after dropping me off at school. And mostly all through the test, I could only think about if she was going to be ok. The teacher appreciated my EARNESTNESS and decided that she’ll give me another chance to retake the test. Later that day I got to visit my mom at the hospital. She was Ok and nothing extremely bad had happened to her.
B. Can the reader accept the characters as real people? Are they true to life?
Yes,everything that has happened to the characters can happen in real life.The characters have realistic personality’s and traits;I did find my self really into in their lives in a way.I could simply imagine what it feels like for Rebel to always have to listen to her musical family pratice their instruments.And about her ahn Moses being tall.
I agree with Olivia when she says she did not become involved in the character’s emotions because she could not relate to the circumstances. Not many teens would find themselves in a situation like Rebel did, and therefore it would be hard to know what the characters were going through. It’s much easier to relate with a character when you have similar experiences with them.
part B question 1
I did not find myself totally immersed in the book. The plot was actually mildly interesting, and well thought out, but boring beyond belief. Maybe the storyline could have been fascinating if written by another author? There were many situations throughout the book that involved alot of emotions, but they were not portrayed well. The character’s dialogues were tedious, and alot of it was pointless. All in all, the book could have been way better than it was, and I was disappointing. By the way, the title is misleading. Rebel doesn’t seem like that much of a rebel to me.
Oh no… Mr. Moshe, did I do the wrong chart for my answer? I was looking through and I saw that someone did another chart that was different from mine.
If I accidently did the wrong type of chart for my answer, I assure you that I did NOT do it on purpose. Thanks!
If you are asking Amanda to blog back so that you two can discuss something about the book (anything about the book is fine), then by all means give her a shout out. If not, then let me remind you that this is not a chat room.
I want to let you all know that at this point, this assignment is closed. You can continue to use this blog to discuss various aspects of the book though. I’m leaving it open to for posts for that purpose.
You all did a great job with this one. And I am granting all of those who posted to this an extra point for a job well done!!!!
Give yourselves pats on your backs! You earned it.
I also agree with Kristin that the author gave good description. It gave me at least a clear view of what was going on. I could imagin it.
I agree with Matt that the main character is Rebel. Even though it is obvious.
HeY aMaNdA s. WhAt’S uP? bLoG bAcK!
#1 The main character is Amanda Keeling. She has brown hair and is 5 ft 10 in. She is taller than her brother wally and she was the tallest in her class.
Yea, Olivia I agree with you I couldn’t really relate to the characters from Rebel either. I felt as though Rebel was a trouble maker always trying to do unecerssary things, that always seemed to get her in trouble. And Moses where do I even begin he was such a follower. Like the time he didn’t wan’t to go any futher in trying to solve the crime but just call his uncle. No, he had to be such a punk about it and listen to Rebel and get in trouble. So, do I think the characters are relatable NO!,because who in their right mind would do some of the idiotic things they did like actually trying to find a criminal. Let’s be realistic here if they were relatable they would have called the police and let them handle the situation.
What’s your last initial?
What period are you in?
I need to know this so I can give the proper Kyle credit…
To Logan. I don’t believe that Moses is a dynamic charecter because whatever he does it’s the same exact thing he always does he never changes
Does the main character develop or grow as a result of the incedents in the story? Yes, for example Rebel used to be a real rude person and had attitude. But even though she still has some, she has learned to work with another person, and tried being nice.
Quote: “I wouldn’t have acted the same when Rebel found the counterfeit bills and tried to solve the case. On the contrary, I would have called the police and let the professionals catch the criminals. Things could get dangerous and I wouldn’t want to be in the middle.”
In a way I would have acted as Rebel I would have wanted to figure out what happened but know the circumstances I probably would have called the police earlier.
I qoute: “Evan S. P2 says and I quote “All of the characters with the exception of Rebel are static characters in this book” however I would think that Moses changes as well”
On this I must disagree with you. Moses seems to not change at all, maybe interenally in the writers mind but not changes occur in between the lines nor on paper. Moses reamains as he did when the book began. Thus Moses is static.
A. Who is/are the main character(s)?
1.Rebel is the Main character of “Rebel”. Rebel is five feet ten inches, and fourteen years old. “What a pity, its hard for a girl to be six feet”, those words were said by her Grandma Clara. Rebel’s mother wasn’t exceptionally tall, instead she was petite and Rebel has always envied that. But her mother didn’t think being tall was so bad she even said, “Its nice to have someone tall around when your brothers aren’t home”.
2.In the novel it stated that Rebel “had a tendency to
Discount other people’s opinions and warnings. She needed to prove a thing to herself before she was satisfied”. Her family thinks that her attitude of rebellion was inherited from her Gram, who also had a tendency to take risks.
3.Beneath the hard attitude, there is a romantic, strong, girl who knows what she wants in her life. When Isay romantic I refer to when she would think about what she would want in a husband or how her and her husband would fall in love. She had a conversation with Mrs.Dolzyicki, and was highly interested in how she and her husband fell in love. The adjective “strong” refers to her as independent. When the evidence and the case unwound she did not want any help, she wanted to do it herself. Rebel knows waht she wants in life, in a way she knows what she wants and goes after it.
4.Rebel shows other she is strongwilled, risky, and at times ignorant. Rebel is strong willed or stubborn, she likes do to things her way. When Moses wants the cops to come and take over the case, Rebel wanted them to finish it themselves, and persuaded Moses to wait a bit longer. The risk of being in posession of counterfeit money, and trying to crack down on some counterfeiter examplifies that Rebel is risky.At times Rebel is ignorant, for example: When her mother asked her about falling off a tree because her brother was trying to take her teddy bear away Rebel replied, “because it was my bear”.
-“she wasnt 6 feet her father’s height, she was five feet ten”
-“not particuallarly petite”
Characters ideas about themself
-“thanks mom just when i convinced myself i was petite”
Other people’s ideas about the character
-“Yeah, not ignorant!”-Moses
-“Rebel is being Rebel”
D.What does it mean for a character to be static or dynamic?
1.)Tiger, Pookie, Grandma and Old Vi are static because they dont change in the story and they are minor characters.
2.)Rebel and Moses are Dynamic because they always are changing in the story. When Rebel asks her mom to have some sweets her mom says no and she still takes another sweet. Moses when he asks Rebel to sleep on the same floor with him
3)Some of the same things that the dynamic and static characters have the same personalities. Some of the diffrences between dynamic and static characters are some are the same and some are diffrent
I agree with Kaveena p.2 even though not as much about the book being boring because it didnt seem that boring to me, but other than that I agree with her. The characters were relistic to life, I said that in MY response.
B. Yes the reader can accept the characters as real people and true to life.
1. I was totally immersed in the world of the characters because what was going on in the book was realistic and the clues in the mystery fit together without irregular problems. The mind of Rebel is realistic for a teenager, since she is thinking about boys and her future.
2. I can be relatable to both Rebel and Moses because they are both criticized about their size. I’m short and small to people I know and they always be saying that I’m a midget or look young for my age. I can relate do Moses since we both have a big imagination and like to think thing out. Rebel and I both are into romance and try to find traits in boys and enjoying thinking into the future.
3. Yes there is Gram and Viola that seem to embody a kind of timelessness since they never changed in throughout the story. They are still laid-back and doesn’t want to get retired at there age.
4. Yes Moses’ manner and views that are familiar because he is very cautious about keeping the evidence because he didn’t want to get in trouble and when the evidence was missing, he started to get uneasy from thinking of the worse consequences that may occur to him.
Evan S. P2 says and I quote “All of the characters with the exception of Rebel are static characters in this book” however I would think that Moses changes as well just not as distinctly throughout the book he also is right next to rebel through most of the story and perhaps if we got down to it and compared both of their dialogue Moses probably said even more then Rebel throught the story.
1 Female young brown hair and rebelous “why is she being so obstinate” “mabye she’ll turn out like me and be a rebel all her life”.
2 Rebel feels a need to be the leader and to do things differently or at least try them for herself.
3 does not show others that she is self=conscious of how others feel and think about her and that she feels different thatn everyone else. Rebel was conscious of wearing PJs in front of Moses.
4 Rebel shows herself as highly independant a great leader and very rebelous “so why is she being so obstinate” ” or mabye she’ll turn out like me and be a rebel all her life”
1. The static characters in the story Rebel include Gram and Viola. They never change. They’re minor characters.
2. The dynamic characters in the story are Rebel and Moses. They constantly undergo change. And the author explains each character in detail. They’re major characters.
3.The difference between static characters and dynamic characters is the fact that static characters hardly almost never change. Meanwhile, dynamic characters undergo change always. Also static characters aren’t in as much detail. Dynamic characters are in alot of detail. The author tries to get the reader to visual them as a person.
1.An event that Rebel grew from was the burlary of her grandmothers house. She also didn’t get to ride in a caravan in europe with her parents. And when she met Moses.
2.Yes, at times I got involved in the emotions of the characters.When there mood would change from happy to sad sometimes mine would also. It felt like I was apart of the story.
3.i began to notice them as individuals for the strengths. I understood her physical desription. But it was hard sometimes to understand Rebels thoughts and feelings. I do know though that Rebel is a very strong and confident person.
4.i think I would have acted some sort of the same way. The only difference is is that I would have contacted the police sooner. I don’t think i would have been able to solve the mystery on my own
I agree with judline I wasn’t totally immersed in the world of the characters.
Also lenin you could have wrote a little more.
Plus connie I agree with you i could see the characters as real people.They act like real people do and live in a realistic place.
C. Yes, Rebel develops and grows as a result of the incidents in the story.
1. Rebel went through lots of events that she grew from. For example, when Rebel met Moses she thought he would probably be shorter than her and wasn’t looking forward to meeting him. But then when she met him he was taller than her and was attracted to him.
2. Yes, I did become involved in the emotions of the character. Like when Tiger was missing and Moses came down stairs Rebel was thinking how embarrassing it was to be wearing kids’ pajamas, while he was only in basketball shorts and he had nice muscles. If I was Rebel, I would be embarrassed too.
3. Yes, the reader does come to know the characters as individuals with unique strengths and weaknesses. Such as when Moses is expected to do so much more than he can do just because he is tall and people think he has a more mature mind. Nevertheless, he is just an ordinary kid and when it comes to dealing with criminals, he is as scared as the rest of us. A strength that the reader comes to know is when Tiger goes missing Rebel goes out and looks for him. She could have just left Moses to look for him but what if Pookie went missing, she would want Moses to go with her.
4. No, I wouldn’t act in the same manner as the main character in any given event. If I were their I would want to find out a little bit of the mystery but, I would have called the police sooner.
1.When she asked Mrs.D and Mr.D how they met each other,she kind ofgrew up a little and thought not all people meet at loves first sight.Also,when she had to make the choice eariler about if they should callUncle Glen or not,she grew up and rationalized the situation and didn’t call him because she wanted harder hitting evidence.
2.Yes,because when they had to catch the crooks I think the characters abd I both felt the emotion of “when is this whole thing going to be over and come to a end?”
3.Yes,because with Rebel some of her strengths were being able to not give and keeping her cool through the inveitigation,but one of her weaknesses was Moses himself.
4.No,because the part when she had the choice to call Uncle Glen or just keep on rolling with the flow, even if she did grow from the expeirence I would have not done that. I would have called the real dective/police officer Uncle Glen and let him and his crew handle it,because what if when they caught them and they had really bad weapons,what could thaey do except get hurt?
Question B #2
I found Rebel the most relatable.It’s because she’s independent like me.Happy inside most of the time.And destructive because I’m very clumbsy and break alot of things.
1) Rebel keeling is the main charcter. She is extermely tall for her age. She towers over everyone in her class. Quote from the book, “She was only 5’10, but was eight inches taller than her younger brother, Wally, who was still growing.” She has auburn hair
2) Rebel’s mom motivates Rebel to behave as she does because the mom doesn’t let her have freedom. And Gram motivates Rebel because she is outgoing and Rebel is outgoing as well.
3)Rebel’s internal traits include honesty, friendly, and communicative. Only people who are close to her know that.
4)Rebel’s external traits are that she looks tough, and I guess people are intimidated by her.. ahe is rebellious, open-minded, and determined. She is rebellous because her first words were “NO!” And she refuses to do anything she really doesn’t want to do.
C. Does the main character develop or grow as a result of the incidents from the story?
1. Rebel grew from the robbery in the house because from that she learned that she needs to be more careful in what her surroundings are because probably she would of realized the incident the night the house got broken into, if she’d pay attention. Another is her meeting Moses because ever since then she’s been talking about him being her future husband and if it wasn’t for Moses, her vacation wouldn’t of been as much fun and adventurous.
2. Yes, I did become involved in the emotions of the characters because when Rebel, Moses, and the others were scared and worried because Tiger got away, I felt the same way, hoping that Tiger will be found and everything would be okay with him. Another is when Rebel and Moses were trying hard to figure out who the theif was, I was just as curious as they were, trying to geuss who was the person who committed the crime.
3. Yes, the readers do realize the strengths and weaknesses of certain characters. This is because the author shows the characters personaltity really well. Rebel’s strength is that she’s determined and has confidence that she will accomplish what she has to do, for instance, find the person who was the theif. She also has a feeling of what she wants in life in the future like having Moses as her future husband. Her weakness is that she thinks that she always knows what she’s talking about and that she doesnt need nobody to tell her what to do, thats one of the reasons why she’s so excited to be with Gram. Moses also knows what he wants to do in life, which is one of his strengths because he’s motivated in moviemaking and writing. His weakness is that he is laid back and sometimes a know-it-all.
4. Yes I would of acted the same way a character did from an event that happened in the story. The part or incident was the robbery and trying to find out who were the people who owned the wallet with the counterfeit money in it. Rebel was really determined in solving the mystery and I would of been too.
B : Can the reader accept the characters as real people? Are they true to life?
1. I could totally invision the characters lives. The writer gave very good details and I felt like I was right there at their house.
2. I think the most compelling characters were Rebel and Moses. Without them, there wouldn’t have been a story.
3. Mrs. Dolzychi seemed to embody a kind of timelessness. She told Rebel about her love life and gave her advice.
4. Mrs. Dolzychi reminded me of my own mom. My mom is always giving me advice and she tells me many stories of when she was younger and dating.
5. Rebel asked Mrs. Dolzychi if she believed in love at first sight. Rebel was just questioning different things about life.
1.) All of the characters with the exception of Rebel are static characters in this book. I say this because they all perfectly fit the definition; you know of them, they add details or show sides of the main character, and they seldom change.
2.) Rebel is the dynamic chracter in this book. This is due to her changes in personality and how she acts from the beginning to the end of the story. Towards the start of the book she is close minded and must have it her way near all the time, but at the end she loosens up and becomes a bit more open-minded to whats happening. The most detail and focus is on here through out the story.
3.) Dynamic characters in a selection are the main character(s); they grow, learn, change and develop as the story progresses. These characters usually learn a lesson or theme of some sort in the book.
Static characters are the opposite of what I stated above just about. They seldom change and we know very little of them, they affect the main character in one way or another, but thats about the only role they play in a story.
To Kaveena A. p2 I completely agree with you. I believe you have made a very good point and your answer adresses the question. I think you deserve an A+ for that response.
D-What does it mean for a character to be static or dynamic?
1.Static characters are the characters that aren’t really shown all the time in the book. Examples are Gram, Old Vi, and Rebel’s family. those characters didn’t have a big role in the book and don’t have any detail. It gives brief information about them.
2. Characters that are dynamic are the main characters. They do more in the book than the others. They are more realistic. It makes you think that they are real people the way they are described. that is how you know about dynamic.
3.The difference between static and dynamic is that static is the secondary character. They are flat and don’t have much detail. In dynamic they are the main characters. They are more round and are the stars of the book. Gram is a static character she isn’t in the story that much. Rebel is dynamic so she is in the story most of the time.
To Lenin R.p5 I belive the Old Man’s name would be Mr. Dolzicky. I also think that you could have used more details in your answers especially since the directions especifically state that “your answers must be in paragraphs”. In conclusion I agree with Marcus.
B. Can the reader accept the characters as real people? Are they true to life?
To me this book was mad boring or in other terms not entertaining I couldn’t find myself immersed or into the book at all, but anyways back to the point to answer the question, can the reader accept the characters as real people an are they true to life? Well there are many people in this world who are the same or have similar personalities as the characters in the book. For example, Rebel. Rebel is the main character of the book not counting the obvious that her name is the name of the book. Well she is a rebellious young girl, who is also very stubborn and expresses herself in what she wears and in what she does in daily life, to sum it up in everything she does.I’m one of those people or as you can say the Rebel type.They are very true to life as I expressed or said in the sentences above. One more example is Moses. In the book Moses isn’t really a person you can know exactly or figure out how his attitude is when you first meet him, but when the book moves along he’s a calm, and an adventurous person. There also people like that. To sum this answer to the question all up these characters can be accepted as real people by me and they are true to life and there are living examples to prove it.
C Yes, the main character does develop and grow as a result of the incidents in the story.
1 The main character, Rebel, goes through many events or episodes that she grows from. One of them is when Tiger goes missing during the storm at night. After this event she becomes more aware of her sorroundings and whom she can trust. Another one is when she first meets Moses and he tells her all about his scripts and movies and how the house is a great place to shoot the movie since it is creepy. After that she does think of the house as creepy and frightning. A great place to shoot a horror movie like Moses said so. Before this incident she thought of the house as old-fashioned, not creepy.
2 Yes, I did become involved in the emotions of the characters. For example, right after Claudia left when Moses and Rebel couldn’t find the windbreaker I did feel their nervousness. When they found it on the closet under the stairs I did feel relieved like them. Their emotions were very realistic and relateable.
3 Yes, the reader does come to know the characters strenghts and weaknesses. One example is when Moses admits how wveryone expects so much more out of him because he is different than everybody else. But the truth is that he is an ordinary guy who does not know how to deal with criminals and is afraid to be in a situation like this. An example of a strenth that the reader comes to know about the characters is when Tiger goes missing and Rebel helps look for him. This shows how she is willing to cooperate with others to achieve a common goal in this case finding Tiger. This also shows how she came to like Tiger.
4 No, I would not have acted the same manner as the main character in any given event or episode. If it was me, the the police would have known about it way sooner. Rebel was always pushing Moses to try and solve this on their own and I think that, that is incorrect because they don’t know who they are dealing with. It seemed to me as if she was looking for trouble.
Mr. Moshe this book was not a book for a “critical thinker” it was soooo boring and so easy why did we have too read it?
Yes the reader can think of the characters of being true to life. I understood the story but I didn’t find myself totally imersed in the character’s world because to me the characters were kind of bland and there world was very confusing.
I found Gram to be the most relateable character because her enthusiasm reminded me of my own grandmother. Gram and Viola seem to embody a since of timelessness because even their grandchildren can relate to them when it comes to music , movies, and issues about life. they relate to their grandchildren as if they were the same age, even if they do not always see eye to eye with their children.
Gram and Viola’s views felt familiar because they are more liberal in thinking, like a teenager would be. One example would be when they decided to buy the house because they were tired of their retirment home and they wanted to experiment.
1.B I think that the story is realastic because it has real life situations and real characters.That is why I think it is so boring it is just like another day.
2.I cant really relate to any of the characters because in some situations I think I am the complete oposite,like neither of them like to play sports and I cant live without them.
3.No I dont think there are any characters like that.
4.I think Moses kind of reminds me of my brother because my brother likes big dogs,he likes mysteries,and and likes to direct films and create scripts/plays.
1. A static character in the story would be Moses because he maybe in the whole story but he’s not really a big part of it because the storys about Rebel how she changes, grows all Rebel.
2. Rebel is the Dynamic character because she is talked about thoughout the book and she is all the book talks about not to metion the title “REBEL”.
3. Rebel and Moses are very diffrent but have small simularetys such as they both have parents that want them to be one thing and the want them to the other.They are diffrent in alot of other ways like there pations (Moses with film making and Rebel is a little on the side of choosing what she wants to do)Rebel is a risk taker but Moses is a little on the safe side.
D. What does it mean for a character to be static or dynamic?
1.Gram Viola and Rebel’s grandmOther are static characters. We don’t really know how they are in the view of their personalities and looks. We just know that they’re both Old and they bOth love to be adventurous. However thats not enugh information.
2.Characters like Rebel and Moses are the dynamic characters in a story. We knew a lot about them such as Rebel is very tall (5’9”) skinny with dark brown hair, likes to do things her own way and Moses is extremely tall as well (6’6”) with brown hair and glasses and would like to make movies when he grows up.The story was focused on them investigating who was the person that broke into their house and who the counterfit dollar bills belonged to.
3.Both dynamic and static characters are important to the story because with out dynamic character then there really wouldnt b a story and if there would be it would be confusing and pointless. Static characters add to tell the story since you cant just have main characters. Static characters bring conflict and suspense tO stories.
B. Can the reader accept the characters as real people? Are they true to life?
Although the book was slightly boring, I was still totally immersed in the world of the characters because most of the events that I’ve read seems like they could be real-life events. Everything they were going through and the situations they were in could have happened to anybody.I’ve found two main chararcters, Rebel and Moses most compelling and relateable because they both seem like they are so alike and so perfect for each other. I could relate to them because up until the 6th grade I was always the tallest kid in the class. Rebel is the only one to mee who seems to embody a kind of timelessness becasue through the story she’s an independent rebel and it doesn’t seem like that will ever completely change about her. Both Rebel and Moses’ views felt familiar becauseRebel says that she’s gotten use to the stupid comments like “How’s the weather up there?” “How come you’re not on the basketball team?” and “Here’s Goliath, and she’s a girl! Have you met David yet?” Also when Moses first meets Rebel he informs her that he is 6″6, the air up there is fine, he doesn’t get nosebleed from the altitude;no, he’s not a basketball player and he doesn’t aspire to be, but his nikes are a size 16 and have to be specially ordered. I’ve been asked some of those questions before and at my age I still get asked those questions every once in a while.
I agree with Kerrina about Rebel being that dynamic character in the story she seemed so mean and disobedient in the beginning of the story and as soon as she met Moses we saw the softer side of Rebel.
Question D. What does it mean for a character to be static or dynamic.
1. Gram,Viola,Mr. and Mrs.Dolzycki,Pookie,Tiger are static because they might appear in chapter 4 and pop back up in chapter 9 not changed.
2. Rebel and Moses are dynamic because they change alot Rebel who we see in the beginning as a rebellious and a girl who doesn’t abide by the rules,later in the story she shows lots of signs of being good and obedient.
3.Static and dynamic we know they are different,but they are the same because they are needed to make a great book.Without static characters who would affect the dynamic characters as they move along in the story and without dynamic characters what would the story be about.They are different because static characters you here about once in a while not changing at all,on the other hand dynamic characters are in eah chapter constantly changing from beginning to end.
D. What does it mean for a character to be static or dynamic?
1. Gram and Old Vi are static characters.They don’t change at all through out the entire story. They aren’t even mentioned in this book that much. Gram has been outgoing ever since the begginning. Gram is very helpful to Rebel with her advice Rebel asks for.
2. Rebel is a dynamic character. She changed though out the story. In the beginning of the story seemed mean. Talking to Moses made her a lot friendlier.
3.Gram will never change like rebel has chaged. Rebel changed from mean to friendly once she started talking to Moses, Gram, and Mrs.Dolzycki. Gram continued to be thoughtful and helpful. A great role model to Rebel. they are both alike because they both have likeable and outgoing personalities.
