    Blog Entry #2 – Characterization

     Welcome back!  Now that we’ve begun class discussions about literature, please analyze the main character of your summer reading novel.

      • What adjectives would you use to       describe the main character’s personality?
      • Which       elements of characterization did the author depend on the most and WHY? Appearance, Personality, Background,       Motivation, Relationships, Conflict, OR, Change? (you can discuss       more than one)
      • In your opinion, what was the most challenging obstacle the main character had to face?
      • If you could give the main character some advice, what would you say?

    This first blog "topic" is simply opinion. Identify the book youpicked to read over the summer and share your perspective aboutthe novel. You will be "blogging" with other students on team who read the same book.
