Copy of Dynamic/Static Characters Lesson
Transcript of Copy of Dynamic/Static Characters Lesson
Disney's classic animated movie, "Beauty and the Beast," involves a prince who is introduced as an angry character. By opening his heart, he changes into a warm, lovable character in the end. Think for a moment and raise your hand with an example of a dynamic character from "Holes" or "Tuck Everlasting." Examples: Disney's famous villain from "The Lion King," Scar, remains the same evil lion that he was at the beginning of the film. Candace, Phineas and Ferb's paranoid sister, almost never stops trying to bust her two brothers. Why do I care? A character's choice not to change may say something about them and help you understand the story. Perhaps they are already perfect characters, or maybe the author is pointing out their flaws. Raise your hand and name a static character from "Holes" or "Tuck Everlasting." Both dynamic and static characters are important to a story. Without change in a character, there might be no plot to the story. And, without characters who remain the same, there will be no foundation to the story.
Heroes are typically dynamic, as they usually must change to overcome the conflicts within the story. Why might a hero be static? Now that you understand the two main types of characters, here is your assignment: Watch the following show. Write down a character that is dynamic and one that is static (Not Candace!). For the dynamic character, write down the change. (*Hint - There is one VERY obvious dynamic character).
