Today in class we talked about how the protagonist affects the plot of a story. We have discussed this several times. All seemed to understand. When I asked if they was only a protagonist and no antagonist/minor/supporting characters, what would the story be like? You all agreed that it takes antagonist/minor/supporting characters to create a story. We referred back to "My Side of the Story" and talked about the impact that the brother, Skip, and the dad had on the story. We talked about who were these characters, how did they affect/contribute story, problem/conflict. Next, I handed out a bookmark with these questions on them and sent you off to read for about 15 mins. Then you and your partner shared about how the antagonist/minor/supporting characters contributed to the plot of the story and who are they as characters.
