This trio of activities will add depth to students' comprehension as they analyze a stories. Here, they will examine characters for round, flat, dynamic and static qualities, as well as for the impact of characters on the Plot/Conflict.
For Background Check, students mesh the information that they gather on a character from their reading with their understanding of the jobs offered during the time period of the story, or for the criteria colleges require for admission. This career choice depends on the character's age.
Fishing for Answers Directions: Each of you will choose a situation from the story that hooks the character(s) in this action to the conflict. Select one of the characters to evaluate, and then respond to each of the points on this handout. You will have ten minutes to present your points and to support them. When time is up, each of you will stand and present the situation and your responses.
