Which elements of a story can help you predict early on what a story will be about? (Choose all that apply.)

A.the author’s name
B.the title
C.the tone of the first paragraph
D.illustrations and captions
I definitely think it is B and D...A is questionable even though the authors name is indian and C - I think it is included but I amnot positive...?

  • Lang. Arts -

    I'd include B, C, and D ... and keep in mind that not all books have D!!

  • Lang. Arts -

    I think it's B, C, and D.

    In this case, A gives you a clue -- but that is unusual.

    I'm reading a book by Ruth Rendell -- which certainly does not give any hint about what the book is about.

  • Lang. Arts -

    I agree - and thank you

  • Lang. Arts -

    Both of you - thanks :)
