Response #9: Setting Changes Choose one of the following and explain what changes it would make in your story if: a)     the setting were changed to 100 years in the future or the past. b)    the setting were changed to another place ( country, planet, etc) In your response consider whether the change of setting would change the plot, the type of conflict, the way characters behave, dress, or interact with each other or adults. For example, if your book is about bullying in the present time they may refer to texts or facebook. Thirty years ago it would have been phone calls and notes. One hundred years ago it would have been face to face or notes on a slate. The time changes how the conflict is expressed.
