What We Choose to See...

Today in class, we explored the word characterization (our word of the day, which is the way in which we describe characters--both physical and emotional / relational). We discussed Victor from Gary Soto's story, "Seventh Grade" and also a powerful scene from the film Rudy

In groups, you created ideas for how me might characterize Victor, the janitor, and Rudy, and in what ways each shows us his personality and convictions.

You also took your second vocabulary quiz today and shared some insights into your own personality and convictions.

Our quote for the day was from Mahatma Gandhi, "Be the change you wish to see in the world."

Have an amazing weekend!

  1. My favorite protagonist is the Jedi Obi-wan Kenobi, because he is smart, brave, and always tries to be polite and do the right thing.
