English for October 22, 2013

Our new topic is character traits. Let's learn more about character traits by using my website and reading Frindle!


Analyze the interactions between characters.

You can get to know characters better by studying their traits and behaviors, as well as the ways in with they interact with one another. For example, think about how much you learn about Harry Potter through his interactions with Voldemort. The way Harry stands up to someone everyone else fears shows how brave Harry is. 

Good readers notice what characters do and say and how they interact with one another. When you compare and contrast characters, you have a better idea of what each character is like and how the characters relate to one another.
