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