Today we discussed direct quotes and paraphrases. I showed you an example today if I wanted to prove if Vizzini was a mean-spirited character, how I would do that with a direct quote and how I would do that with a paraphrase:
Vizzini is a mean-spirited character, especially when he is talking to Fezzik. In one instance when he addresses Fezzik, in order to show his anger, he gets eerliy quiet (135).
Vizzini is a mean-spirited character, especially when he is talking to Fezzik. In one instance, "the Sicilian lost control. It was terrifying when he did it. With most people, they scream and holler and jump around. With Vizzini, it was different; he got very very very quiet, and his voice sounded like it came from a dead throat" (135).
Next we discussed predicate adjectives. You took some notes from page 499.
DUE WEDNESDAY Page 499 #1-10 answers only
DUE THURSDAY All evidence to prove your character has those character traits you chose to fill in to the ovals on your paper. All of the evidence belongs in the rectangles on your graphic organizer/brain web I gave you on Monday. In order to complete it properly, you MUST HAVE (for the minimum) 2 direct quotes as evidence, and 1 paraphrase. The rest can be a combination. You MUST also include page numbers for the evidence.
