A Character's Setting


Hey Everyone!

I hope you had a relaxing weekend.
Now that we're back, let's get reading.

You will need three tabs open:
1. This blog.
2. Your English Journal in Google Drive
3. Socrative (room number: 504326)

We have been looking at characters. Today we are going to move our analysis over to setting.

A detailed setting can tell you a lot about a character, too!  We will look at a setting together, you will look at settings in your books and, if you are very lucky, you might even get to create your own setting that says something about a character.

Goal #1: Let's look at this character together:

Miss Havisham is an incredibly rich and ancient (old) woman who was left standing at the altar on her wedding day many many years ago. She is bitter, angry, and still cannot let go of the memories of that terrible day. 


You'll need to create a table in your English Journal that looks like this:

Using the one-page text you have linked above (that you are now allowed to open), as well as what you already know about Miss Havisham, fill in the table above with quotes that describe setting, and what that shows you about the character.
