Tuesday, Dec. 6th

Next class, you will be writing your IN CLASS ESSAY on To Kill A Mockingbird.  We’ve already gone over your options in class.  If you have any questions, come and talk to me before Thursday.

Today we read the first part of “The Metaphor” (65-76) and noted the author’s CHARACTERIZATION techniques.

We looked at Matt Groenig’s cartoon on 81 types of high school students and picked one to CHARACTERIZE.

We wrote a

1. physical description

2. description of character through actions

3. description of character through dialogue (typical things this person would say)

4. description of character through others’ opinions (named three people in this character’s life and what each thought of this character)

5. description through comparisons (metaphor, allusion, character foil).

We then read pages 65-76 of “The Metaphor” and wrote the page number next to each of the techniques above where the author uses these same techniques for characterization.

We observed details on Charlotte’s metaphor for her mother and interpreted the details.  We made a connection between our experiences and those of Charlotte.

This response was handed in at the end of class for 10 marks.
