  • What writing choices does the author make at the turning point?
  • Are the choices the same or different from the text surrounding them?
  • How does the turning point change the writer?
  • Is there a change in belief, value, perspective, or understanding?
  • How do you think the writer wants the reader to react to this turning point and change?
  • How do you react to this turning point and change?
  • What may be the universal lesson or understanding that emerges from the text?
