P RE - WRITE F ICTIONAL N ARRATIVE Write three story starter ideas on the back of your rubric. Complete the characterization of 3 characters. Protagonist= person the story was written about. Antagonist= person/element causing conflict in the story. The third character is author’s choice.
C HARACTERIZATION D IALOGUE T HOUGHTS Adelweiss“Who were these people, and why did Voter act the way he did?” wondered Adelweiss. Questions popped into my mind. Scurrying to a safer place. Black-booted men“Heil-Hitler” shouted the Black-booted men. One large man remarked, “You must, under orders of the Fruhler…” Raised his arm up a diagonal line…. Wood-crashing, blood curdling scream…..
C HANGE P ASSIVE TO ACTIVE VOICE: Change expressions(said) and passive “to be” verbs to action words. Circle all the “to be” verbs on one of your pages. (is, are, am, was, were, will be, has, have, had, get, got, did, said) REPLACE all circled words. Ex: Hitler was telling people about how all Jews were to be sent to concentration camps. Hitler informed his crowd of soldiers that the important but difficult job required removal of all Jewish residents, so as to cleanse the future of Germany. Hitler’s agent, the black-booted guard, screamed, “Never mind your bag, woman; get into that boxcar, now, before I shoot your husband.”
A CTIVE VOICE : Ex: I didn’t look, but I knew we were surrounded. Obstructed view, and low light blocked my sight, but I felt the dark, inhuman enemy surrounding Anna, Brett and me. It was a Tuesday afternoon, and I had just gotten out of school. On Tuesday, school dismissed at 4:35.
A CTIVE V OICE : EX: The dark cold night in the city of New York lay quiet. Descriptive action. As soon as they struggled to see the mysterious creature, they all ran away screaming and crying. Action verbs. The streets were abandoned and the lights were off at every apartment. Passive voice. Although we walked on a city street, all windows reflected darkness and every street lay abandoned. Sensory details.
“ She found something,” Rick yelled at the waiting soldiers. I knew my mother couldn’t take care of us; we were on our own. (We were definitely abandoned.) EX: It was a cold dark night in London town. A cold, dark night fell over London town.
