The setting is telling you something

Art by: Cate Simmons
Goal: Understanding how setting helps us understand characters.

Writing about setting
Reading a setting
Reading specifically for setting

#1: Open your English Journal
Start a new entry at the top.
Describe a place you like to be. What does this place say about you as a person? 
#2: Look closely at a setting
CLICK THIS LINK: to view a description of a setting from Great Expectations. We will look closely at what this setting tells us about the characters.

#3: Talk to your group
Talk to your group about what's happening in your novel.
How has setting played a role so far?
What do the settings tell you about the characters? MARK the places in your book where the setting informs you about the characters.
What is confusing you about the events or characters in your novel? 

Keep up with your reading. Be prepared to meet your reading goal for Friday.
