    1. Choose a main character that you believe is a dynamic character. First, identify what it is he/she learns. Next, show how he/she comes to learn it. Conclude by making some statement about the value of what he/she learns. In other words, is what the character learns and important thing for all people to learn and if so, how and why. Give examples to support this conclusion.
    2. Choose one character you’ve read about that you identify with (you know how he or she feels, you understand why he or she behaved in a certain way or made choices he or she made).
