What is the meaning of noting details?

The meaning of noting details is that you remember things in detail from a book or story. So you note them down to remember them. In reading, this is an observation and reading comprehension skill. But we use it every day in observing our world and others. If you close your eyes and think about your bedroom, you could describe in writing 10 things located in your bedroom. If you had a oversized Oklahoma flag hanging above your desk, you could offer an explanation about that detail. These are skills used in reading a book, where a character owns something unusual, posseses some unique character trait, or acts in a peculiar way (whether good or bad). When you write a book report, book summary, or a term paper, the details you note will help you write an interesting reflection about the book or story.

What is the plot of the book egghead?

The book "Egghead" By Caroline Pignat is basically about bullying. Here's the back of the book:

Will Reid is a gawky kid who wears fake turtlenecks, is obsessed with his ant farm and is lousy at gym. In other words, he's the perfect target for Shane, the grade 9 bully.

Katie has been Will's friend since elementary school, but defending him in high school now comes at a real cost.

And then there's Devan...

Devan has been part of Shane's bullyboy team until he realizes that it's not so smart to mindlessly back up each nasty attack of Shane's.

Together, the three teens struggle to find their way out of the classic dilemmas of life: how to not be a bystander to bullying, how to stand up for your friends and how to deal with consuming rage.

Young readers will find much food for thought in this compelling, crisply told story of compassion confronting intimidation.

What is an Horizon Analysis for a book report?

Think of of the horizon, it is just the big picture, now there are details painted into that picture, but it all depends on if those details add more or take away questions into the picture. Then compare and contrast on how you would have handled the situation, but do it with out bringing yourself into it. For example:
"Romeo then could have killed himself with with that poison, or he could have kissed the lips of his beloved and suffer in love, not in vein, but for a greater peace"
Then show the path he took and let it end. Depending on how many plots and important yet not important twists and details there are, also take into consideration the fact that there could have been some paths not taken. It is the best way, in my oppinion, to do it.
