English 421:

  • Today we discussed characterization.  We began by looking at a clip of Sheldon from the Big Bang Theory and discussing his character.  Students wrote a PPE (point, proof, explanation) paragraph about him.  In small groups, they then did a similar exercise, but this time discussing the main character from the short story “The Possibility of Evil”.
  • Students were given the narrative writing assignment – a complete draft of this is due next Friday, October 2nd, for peer revision with the final polished submission due Monday, Oct 5.  You can find this assignment posted on the English 421 page.
