Video, Handouts, and Assignment for 9/8 Unit 1 Session 4-



Learning Target: Today I am learning to notice parts of characters that are less likeable.

Success Criteria: I can identify a character’s less likeable sides.


Please watch the video and think about the main characters we've encountered so far.  Will and Harry both have positive and negative character traits.  After watching the video and looking at the handouts, think about the main character of the book or short story you are reading now.  Come up with 2-3 positive and 2-3 negative traits for your main character and jot them in your notebook.  Make sure you have evidence for each trait.  If you complete that AND draw a picture of your character, I'll give you extra credit;-)  As always, remember to put the date (9/8/21) by your work, so I'll know how to give you credit. 


There is nothing to submit for this assignment; I'll grade notebooks when we're back.


Enjoy your reading!
