Transcript of Copy of Round Characters, Flat Characters, Static Characters, Dynamic Characters, and Plot

Round Characters Round characters are characters in works of literature that come upon problems that change them in one way or another. Round characters are usually described in more detail than flat characters. If the character is easy to relate to and seems to face problems that happen in everyday life, they are more than likely round. The author uses many factors to determine whether the character is round or not. Some of these factors are the dialogue and description of the character, as well as how the character reacts to situations facing him or her. Dynamic Characters Dynamic characters are the characters in a book that undergo the most change throughout the course of the story. Dynamic characters are found by determining which character in a book changes the most. If at the beginning of a book, a character has a cold, mean heart and then at the end of the book, has a caring, loving heart, they would be a dynamic character. The dynamic character(s) in a story usually change because of something that happened during the book, such as a death, a move, or a new friendship. Dynamic and round characters are usually major characters in books or movies. Static Characters A static character is usually a minor character in a book or movie that undergoes minimal change over the course of the story. The static character may go through major events in the story, however, they are not majorly affected by these happenings. The static character may be a main character, but this is a rare occurance in works of literature. Flat Characters A flat character is an individual in literature whose attitude and personality can be determined by one or two characteristics. Like static characters, flat characters undergo little, if any, change throughout the course of the events that take place as the story unfolds. Flat characters play an important role in the story, being as they support the main (round) character. Prompt: On your notecard write about your reaction to speaker?

Literary Theory & Critism
Instructor: Ms. Phillips What makes an excellent teacher and what makes a excellent student? Intellectual openness: The student possesses

curiosity and a thirst for deeper

understanding, questions the views of

others when those views are not logically

supported, accepts constructive criticism,

and changes personal views if warranted

by the evidence Such openmindedness

helps students understand the ways in

which knowledge is constructed, broadens

personal perspectives and helps students

deal with the novelty and ambiguity often

encountered in the study of new subjects

and new materials Inquisitiveness: The student engages in active inquiry and dialogue about subject matter and research questions and seeks evidence to defend arguments, explanations, or lines of reasoning The student does notsimply accept as given any assertion thatby acknowledging the accuracy of the critique or challenge Interpretation: The student analyzes
competing and conflicting descriptions
of an event or issue to determine the
strengths and flaws in each description
and any commonalities among or
distinctions between them; synthesizes
the results of an analysis of competing
or conflicting descriptions of an event
or issue or phenomenon into a coherent
explanation; states tis most likely correct or is most reasonable,he interpretation that
based on the available evidence; and
presents orally or in writing an extended
description, summary, and evaluation of
varied perspectives and conflicting points
of view on a topic or issue Precision and accuracy: The student knows what type of precision is appropriate to
the task and the subject area, is able to
increase precision and accuracy through
successive approximations generated
from a task or process that is repeated,and uses precision appropriately to reach correct conclusions in the context of the task or subject area at hand. Problem solving: The student develops and applies multiple strategies to solve routine problems, generate strategies to solve nonroutine problems, and applies methods of problem solving to complex problems requiring method-based problem solving. These key cognitive strategies are broadly representative of the foundational elements that underlie various “ways of knowing ” Overarching Academic Skills
Writing: Writing is the means by which students are evaluated at least to some degree in nearly every post secondary course Expository, descriptive, and persuasive writing are particularly important types of writing in college Students are expected to write a lot in college and to do so in relatively short periods of time Students need to know how to pre-write, how to edit, and how to re-write a piece before it is submitted and, often, after it has been submitted once and feedback has been provided College writing requires students to present arguments clearly, substantiate each point, and utilize the basics of a style manual when constructing a paper College-level writing is largely free of grammatical, spelling, and usage errors.

Research: College courses increasingly require students to be able to identify and utilize appropriate strategies and methodologies to explore and answer problems and to conduct research on a range of questions. To do so, students must be able to evaluate the appropriateness of a variety of source material and then synthesize and incorporate the material into a paper or report. They must also be able to access a variety of types of information from a range of locations, formats, and source environments.
