Welcome to Out of The Deep

Hi Team 15,
We will start reading Out of the Deep next week.  What do you think the book will be about?  What genre?  Who is the author?  What will the main characters be like?  Where is the setting, and what will the book's main problem be?  It's a great book.  More to come next week.  Your teacher, Ms. Devlin


  1. I think that Out of the Deep will be about animals. I think the genre is Realistic Fiction. The authors are Gloria Skurzynski and Alane Ferguson. I think the main characters will probably nice, caring and collaborative. The setting is in Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor, Maine, USA, Earth, Universe. The problem of the book is probably rescuing and keeping animals safe.

  2. jack is the main charicter and really wantse to help the whales. Bindy just likes to eat and be rude. and ahley like Jack is in it for the animals.

  3. Hi Dravin and A., please look at the April post (see right) and read tonight's assignment. Then respond to that assignment too. Thanks. - Ms. Devlin

    1. sorry Ms. Devlin - Dravin

    2. Just now: Apr. 2, 2012 6:15 PM I answered the One about Chapter One in Out of the Deep.
      Thanks for the heads up - Dravin

  4. "Ashley struggled to keep the channel changer out of Jack's reach, but his arms were longer than hers." " Hey wait! Look there-it's one of my favorite movies. Melissa's Dream." Ashley is shorter than Jack, her brother, and she asks lots of questions.

  5. that was Haeun, Liang, and Laura.

  6. I have a lot of questions like
    1. why is Ashley in movies?
    2. why is Ashley in love with Melissa's Dreams?
    3. What sickness did there mom die from?
    I agree with Dravin it's a Realistic Fiction, it can happen, but it is not true. Gloria Skurzynski
    Born: July 6, 1930, in Pennsylvania
    The books she writes are Children’s Books

  7. Hi Elissa, You have some great questions. I know she said that her mom died from cancer, but we don't know if Bindy is telling the truth. This book is realistic fiction and it is also a mystery--it is a mystery because we need to figure out why the whales are beaching themselves and dying. I was wondering why Ashley loves the film, "Melissa's Dreams" too. What is the movie about? I need to read that part again to see if the film was described. Does anyone remember?
