A Separate Peace
*Idea by Traci Gardner, whose fabulous "Lists of Ten" can be found at:
Throughout the reading of A Separate Peace, you will be introduced to numerous characters. Analyzing the characters and their motives is crucial to your understanding John Knowles’ novel.
- Each character deserves their own page; after all, Knowles dedicates substantial time to each one and we need to understand everyone at the school. These characters are “crazy” or “angry” or “guilty” or “proud” according to some students at Vestavia Hills High School, and we need to know why.
- Characters of importance: Gene Forrester, Phineas (Finny), Brinker Hadley, Elwin “Leper” Lepellier, Chet Douglas, Cliff Quackenbush, Mr. Prud’homme, Dr. Stanpole, Mr. Hadley You may add characters as necessary.
- One page for each character. Each should contain the following elements. Be creative with how you choose to present each character and make each page unique!
|Character Name & Description Age, job, relationships, facts, etc.||Symbolism (include a visual associated with the character and explanation of symbolism|
|Analysis of Character including traits, quotations, vocabulary words (at least two) - written detailed analysis||Character-Theme Tie-In: In three sentences, explain how the character helps support or illustrate a theme in the novel|
- Use your character notebook to help you prepare for Socratic Seminars and the end-of-the-unit test.
- Your literature circle group should work together to make a character notebook for the novel. On Day 7 of the unit, your lit circle should divide up the characters in the novel and give each lit circle member 1 or 2 characters to write a page for.
- On the due date (Day 10 of unit), bring in a copy of your character notebook page(s) for each person in your group.
