CONTINUE DELVING INTO THE COMPLEXITY OF CHARACTERS
Readers, for homework, read and think about the main character in your book. How does he or she interact with others? How does he or she act in some settings, situations, and relationships? How does he or she act differently in other contexts? As you think, also refer to the questions about character below.
Questions to Think More about Characters...
• How do other characters act toward my character?
• How does my character act differently with different characters—and why?
• What am I realizing about my character’s relationships?
• What changes am I noticing in my character? What’s causing them?
Look for connections among your initial thoughts. Then come up with a theory about the main character’s relationships. Jot the theory on a Post-it. Find more text evidence to support your theory. Then ask yourself, “Does more than one character fit my theory?” Jot your thoughts on Post-its or in your reading notebook. Then post your response on the blog this week!
