How does this excerpt develop the plot?
the narrator Arnold Spirit, Jr. narrates The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian. Each entry (except the first, which narrates Junior’s early childhood) is narrated only after it is supposed to have happened, as if the novel were a diary.
vantage point Junior tells the story in the first person, focusing on his own experiences while also retelling stories told to him by others or including messages from his sister Mary. Junior prefers to describe characters critically (i.e. with physical and sensory details), but he isn’t afraid to express his thoughts on other people’s looks and behavior.
action on the rise Junior plans to drop out of high school in the reservation town of Wellpinit and enroll in Reardan, a nearby white town. Junior’s Indian friends feel betrayed and lost, and Junior is regarded as an unwanted outsider at Reardan.

We often need to respond instinctively to a speeding taxi as we step off the curb or to the subtle facial signals of an angry boss to survive physically or psychologically. When working through an algebra problem, the automatic mode of thought, which is not under voluntary control, contrasts with the need to slow down and consciously fiddle with pencil and paper. The subject of Nobel Laureate Daniel Kahneman’s new book, Thinking, Fast and Slow, is on these two processes that the brain uses to process knowledge (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, LLC., 2011). The first chapter, “The Characters of the Story,” introduces readers to these structures in the following excerpt. (This image has been used with permission.)
Understanding the difference between quick and slow thought may aid us in finding more realistic solutions to the challenges we face as a society. In the March issue of the journal Nature Climate Change, for example, a commentary explained how carbon labeling that appeals to both structures could be more effective than previous attempts to change consumer behaviors. (Nature Publishing Group owns Scientific American.) Understanding our thought processes will also help us make more personal choices. In a lecture given at the National Academy of Sciences’ “The Science of Science Communication” conference last month, Kahneman discussed how understanding the weaknesses of each method will help us catch our own mistakes.
Which excerpt from chapter 3 of the strange case illustrates a character vs character conflict
For those unfamiliar with Thrawn, he was first introduced in 1991’s Heir to the Empire, which takes place after Return of the Jedi, however the Thrawn Trilogy books were no longer considered part of the expanded universe after Disney purchased Lucasfilm.
Thrawn, on the other hand, was introduced to the Star Wars canon when he was added as the main character for the third season of Star Wars: Rebels, an animated television film. Fortunately for die-hard Star Wars fans like myself, a new novel will soon be available in bookstores that will reintroduce us to Thrawn’s new backstory. The new book takes place before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope, and it chronicles his rise to power within the Empire.
“Fear and coercion are used by most of the Imperial leaders we see in movies to rule. I wanted to make something unique: a commander who could lead by example. Thrawn emerged as a tactical genius whose troops eagerly pursue him and will fight for him whether or not he is looking over their shoulders.” Zahn said. “I get to see how he’s handled by his fellow officers and shipmates as he rises through the ranks of the military, particularly when he’s not in command of them.”
How does the conflict in this excerpt create suspense
Victor is now 17 years old and preparing to enroll at the University of Ingolstadt in Ingolstadt, Germany (near Munich), but a scarlet fever epidemic at home prevents him from leaving. Caroline Beaufort Frankenstein dies, and Elizabeth survives, while his mother and “cousin” battle the disease. “My firmest expectations of future happiness were set on the prospect of your union,” Caroline says before she dies, revealing her unfulfilled plans for Victor and Elizabeth’s marriage.
Victor despises Krempe and the topic he teaches, modern natural philosophy studies. Victor’s previous studies of alchemists are deemed a waste of time by Krempe, who asks if he has “actually spent your time researching such nonsense?” Victor is told by Krempe that he must resume his studies and is given a list of books to read. He also encourages Victor to attend Professor Waldman’s lectures in the coming days.
Victor’s meeting with Professor Waldman moves in a completely different direction. “His individual was short but strikingly erect, and his voice the sweetest I had ever heard,” he says of the 50-year-old Waldman. Victor is taught by Waldman that alchemy is a false science, and that while the alchemist’s goals were admirable, real scientists do the scientific, useful work.
