    Re: "Into the world"- story of tom brennan.

    i have some notes for you and for anyone else who needs them. and a few topic sentences to help you start paragraphs for essays ENJOY
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Topic sentences:

    Different pathways influence the transition into new phases of life for individuals.

    Often it is unexpected and unplanned phases of an individual’s life that provide the most opportunities and challenges.

    PARAGRAPH:
    New phases or experiences in life are inevitable for all individuals in the story of Tom Brennan. This idea of new phases is common throughout the book. Tom’s adolescence is a time of great anguish and pain as he is traumatized by the accident that Daniel was involved with and the impact that it had on his family. Throughout this time he is also trying to find himself after the event that changed his life. In this time he comes to question what is important. His relationship with his new team in Coghill is highly significant. In his role as halfback for his football team, he takes on the responsibility of training and guiding the team. This involvement with football becomes an important symbol of his growing up. Through this experience he starts to appreciate that competition and winning are not the only important goals in life. Being part of a team and supporting your friends is a much greater significance. The team also helps tom to bring out the person who he is and who he used to be. The team provides tom with a solid ground to stand on and his teammates give him the new relationships and friendships for him in Coghill.

    If you google "the story of tom brennan", there's a teacher's support kit.If you havent already, check it out (if it's not too late). It practically spoon feeds.

    Re: "Into the world"- story of tom brennan.

    J.C. Burke's use of flashbacks is an excellent technique. Flashbacks stimulate reader curiosity. It can also be noted that Tom only has flashbacks in the first half of the book. He ceases having flashbacks when he begins his journey 'into the world'. He has to let go of his past in order to move into the future.
