CHARACTERS IN GREAT EXPECTATIONS

DO NOW  When you hear the terms “round character” vs. “flat character,” what do you think of?

LET’S REVIEW  Flat vs. Round  Dynamic vs. Static

FLAT CHARACTER  A character who has not been fully developed; a character we know little about  A two-dimensional character; no depth like piece of cardboard  A simple character; a character who is too obviously all good or all bad

ROUND CHARACTERS  A character who has been fully developed by the author; a character we know a lot about  A three-dimensional character; a realistic character  A complex character, a character with strengths and weaknesses.  ROUND CHARACTERS ARE JUST LIKE PEOPLE!

DYNAMIC VS. STATIC DynamicStatic  Change or grow as a result of the story’s actions  Learn something about themselves, other people, or the world as they struggle to resolve their conflicts.  The changes that a dynamic character undergoes contributes to the meaning of the story.  Do not change or grow  Are the same at the end of the story as they are in the beginning.  Subordinate characters are often static characters.
