Designed for the novel, the film, or both combined, this work package asks students to record details of Starr showing the different sides of her identity depending on the different groups or circumstances she find herself in.
Students learn about important figurative language terminology - characterization is a big focus in this assignment.
They note what Starr says and does in three different roles - Family Starr, Garden Heights Starr, and Williamson Prep Starr.
Using these notes from the novel / film, they write paragraphs detailing why they think she acts these ways in each situation - using the examples they have noted in the chart.
A paragraph rubric is included for grading their paragraphs.
This is a great task for a quick study of the film, or for a focus on the protagonist.
