SWS– Continuing reading Animal Farm. Today we will use the audiobook so you don’t have to listen to me.
H9– Stock characters–> A stock character is instantly recognizable to us from other stories; the grumpy old man, the stuck up popular girl, the bratty little kid. Their role in the story is readily evident and can be summarized in a sentence or less. Such characters are frequently one-dimensional in nature. Here is a super-complete list. Go through chapter 1 and find at least 3 stock characters, 2 archetypes, and 1 symbol. Write this information in your notes.
