Discussing the Setting

1. Go to the Novel Discussion Questions – Setting page at the right. Once there, on your own paper, answer the questions you find there. You do not have to answer them in complete sentences. In fact, you don’t even have to turn them in. Answering the questions on that page, will help you understand how Avi used setting to craft his tale.

2. Return to this page, and answer the following question(s):

  • How does Avi establish a sense of time and place in the book?
  • What are the images, the smells, the sounds that come into your mind as you think about Fulworth, Thorston’s workroom, the apothecary’s shop, and the churchyard?
