Be ready to share your character description with a group. See my example so you know what to do. in Google Classroom

Be ready to share your character description with a group. See my example so you know what to do.

Characterization example: The Knight is high-status AND high morality. The narrator first describes his virtue before saying anything about his physical appearance, which is different from most of the characters. He is described as "distinguished" and that he had "followed chivalry,/ Truth, honor, generousness and courtesy." Then Chaucer describes the many, many battles he had been in various places, showing that he was a truly experienced soldier, not simply for show. His horses and dress are fine, but practical. 

He lives up to the ideals of chivalry, is humble, hard-working, and a gentleman. 

A modern version: The Knight would be a former highly-decorated Navy SEAL who remained humble.  He married his college sweetheart, and they raised three kids, who are now college to mid-twenties.  They go to church every Sunday, and regularly participate in charity events and nonprofit work.  They are considered upstanding members of the community, and some neighbors would like him to run for city council. Idris Elba would play him in the modern movie version.

The Things I Carry--Shitty First Draft in Google Classroom

The Things I Carry--Shitty First Draft

Using O’Brien’s structure and rhythm, write a short personal essay of what you carry. What do you carry in your backpacks, your pockets, your car, your memories, your daily lives? I am not in any way assuming to create equal scenarios or judging times and places to be similar; you are modeling a style of writing, following a premise that we all carry things with us, both literally and figuratively, wherever we go.  

In approximately two pages, double-spaced, respond to this story by sharing the things you carry—both tangibly and intangibly—as they pertain to who you are now and what you do in life. You may want to follow O’Brien’s pattern in the first chapter wherein he states that the things they carried where determined (1) by necessity, (2) as a function or rank or station (3) by superstition and (4) by mission. Only you know what is pertinent to this assignment. Only you know how to best reveal who you are through the things that you carry. This is not intended to be show and tell of your private life. You need not tell your entire life story; you only need to reveal an aspect of yourself.

Somewhere in the essay you should include at least two of the following phrases (quotes from the story, changed to the first person present tense).

“The things I carry are largely determined by necessity.”

“What I carry is partly a function of______________________, partly of___________________.”

“What I carry varies by_____________________.”

“The things I carry by some extent are determined by superstition.”

“I will never be at a loss for things to carry.”

“For the most part, I carry myself with__________________.”
