This activity can be done after watching the movie or reading the book.. this is not a quiz...
I came up with this activity after a teacher and I were talking about an incident with a student (student got in her face). When I asked if she referred student to principal (which I would have done without thinking), she said no (teacher used to teach in alternative school) because she knew that the boy was dealing with alot of stuff and felt that there was a better way to deal with situation than an office referral. At that point, even though I have always LOVED Valjean's character, I realized I was a "Javert" - a rule follower and proponent of justice (without showing compassion). So I created this activity to get the students to think about who they more closely associate with - Javert or Valjean. Do they show compassion in certain situations regardless or are they rule followers to the point of not viewing each situation differently?
There are two versions of this activity. You can choose to do the quick version which is reading a summary of another character analysis then students answer the questions. The second version has the students read actual Les Miserables excerpts, completing their own character analysis, and then answering the worksheet questions.
Right now, there is no key for this (pretty self explanatory) but I may try to do one in the future.
