Key Question #32(10 marks)If you were to choose one romantic relationship within the novel to attest as true, which would it be? (10 marks) Write a love letter from one character to another, in the voice of the character and using details from the story to support your amorous claim. Under the Microscope In the recent past, television shows such as CSI or Law & Order have taken over prime time viewing with immense popularity. The detailed and precise science of Forensics goes far beyond simply looking over a crime scene and providing an opinion. Considering the trial of Kabuo and the somewhat botched police investigation, which surrounded the collection of evidence, a CSI would be ashamed. Key Question #34 (10 marks) Imagine that you could target any one character in the novel to question their role in the process of the investigation. In journalistic style, create a news item exposing the bungling in one aspect of the investigation into the events surrounding Carl Heine’s death and the subsequent trial of Kabuo.

Evaluation: Key Questions Title Mark Value Key Question #35 Theme Songs 20 marks Key Question #36 Descriptive Details of Setting 20 marks Theme Songs You may recall the chorus of a popular song from the seventies, “To everything turn, turn, turn, There is a season, turn, turn, turn, And a purpose to everything, Under heaven…” This song could have acted as an effective theme song for the setting in Snow Falling on Cedars. When Kabuo is put to trial it is winter, and he realizes that he has missed an entire series of seasons. Throughout the story, the setting sets up the characters as they depend on the agriculture, the sea and the economical structure of the small town, for their livelihood. Symbolically, the snow falling on the cedars covers the love affair of Ishmael and Hatsue, the water purifies the crime scene, making it difficult to see anything to blame other than the man (Kabuo) who belongs to a race, which had been suspect during the conflict of Pearl Harbor, and a source of conflict within the community.
