The caring sign is when someone is basically caring for someone or doing the opposite. You can find it by looking for for someone caring in your book. One example of this is in Fox Craft. When Siffrin was teaching Isla how to use Fox Craft. Another way to do this is by looking for the opposite of caring.
This signpost is important because you are finding finding how a character feels about another character. It forces you to ask yourself how might this make the other character feel about one another.
Literature Circle Signposts
In our class, students work in small groups to read novels of their choice three times each week. While reading, students have discussions about their book and record them so that others can listen in on their thoughts! These discussions get catalogued as various "Signposts" (a term from the book "Notice and Note"). We created more than 40 different signposts this year, to go along with the original six from the book. This blog hopes to explain each and every signpost that we discuss!
