Going Further with Setting

Goal: Looking closely at what setting says about character in our novels.

Setting in your Novels
Creating a setting

Look closely at the setting in your book
Look at the settings described in your group novel.  Select three quotes from the novel that describe the setting, but ALSO tell you something about the character. Add this chart to your English Journal.

Create a Setting:
CHOOSE a character from your group book that doesn't have his or her own setting, or who's setting is not well described.
DISCUSS that character and his/her setting with your group.
WRITE a descriptive paragraph about the setting for that character. (In English Journal)
EXPLAIN (in a second paragraph) what you are trying to show about the character with the setting you created.

Be sure your English Journal is caught up. (You should have entries for 10/17, 10/18, 10/20, 10/24, and now 10/26. Visit the blog for any of those days you are missing.)
Keep up with the reading in your group novel.
