This activity is designed so that you might build an explanation for a characters actions. We are going to do this in three parts. Begin by explaining how the character thinks about their part in the story line. Maybe they feel that the story is all about them. Maybe they think they are making good choices and supporting others. They probably think that their perspective is correct. Then, describe the characters emotional response to what happens in the story. Are they happy, sad, angry and explain how you know this. Finish with identifying what the character cares about. What is important to the them and what do they hope might occur? What is their goal and what motivates them?
