Characterization can characters change Characterization can characters change Presentation Transcript

  • “ Lamb to the Slaughter” Characterization throughout a text – Can characters change?
  • Objective: SWBAT describe how Mary’s thoughts and actions characterize her in the beginning of the story.
    • Pre-Reading/Warm-Up
    • Directions: Complete the questions below. We will check them as a class after three minutes.
    • What does the phrase “lamb to the slaughter” make you think of? Brainstorm a quick list of thoughts, feelings, pictures, movies, etc. that you associate with the words “lamb” and “slaughter,” and then write your thoughts on what the idiom “lamb to the slaughter” might mean.
    •  
    • Lamb: __________________________________________________________________
    • Slaughter: _______________________________________________________________
    • Lamb to the slaughter: ___________________________________________________________________
  • Objective: SWBAT describe how Mary’s thoughts and actions characterize her in the beginning of the story.
    • Key Point #1 : A character is a person (or animal) in a story, poem, or play. Every character has his or her own personality, which an author uses to assist in forming the plot of a story. The process of revealing the personality of a character in a story is called characterization . The author shows what a character is like through:
      • External details, such as dress or looks
      • A character’s thoughts, actions, and dialogue (speech)
      • What other characters say or think about that character
    • Key Point #2 : We have to use our own judgment to decide what a character is like based on the evidence in the text. For example:
      • If a character continuously lies to other characters in a text, we can infer that she is dishonest based on her words/dialogue.
      • If a character volunteers her time to helping the homeless, we can infer that she is compassionate and generous from this action.
    • Key Point #3: When characters interact with one another, it often creates conflict . There are several types of conflict, but today we’ll focus on conflict as the struggle or clash between opposing characters. Conflict can directly affect character development.
