september 29

JOURNAL TOPIC: [today's tunes: "I've Just Seen a Face" by The Beatles; "Face Up" by Rush; "Face to Face" by Wayman Tisdale]

Last week we discussed using indirect characterization to establish a character.  Today, describe a face that tells the story of a life.  (Picture each feature as a brief, compelling chapter in a biography: Has that mark always been there?  What caused that scar?)

1. Journal
2. Lecture: Canterbury Tales
3. Fun with Dick and Jane (or whatever you named your characters)-- (1) meet up with a group of characters and share where you're going and why.

1. In a blog post entitled CHARACTER STUDY (III), use today's work to write your character into the emerging story you and your colleagues are creating.  By now, your narrative should include in/direct characterization, a destination, and the first elements of the hero's journey.
2. Peer review: literature analysis (please visit < 5 of your colleagues' blogs and comment/ask questions re: their literature analysis #1; also think about how best to organize everyone's work so you can find it easily.  Last year's cohort put them on a mindmap-- can you think of something better/easier to use?)
