LI: to analyse a characters traits to understand a story more.
In reading, we are looking at analysing how authors use characterisations to influence certain feelings and emotions from the reader. Me and my partner analysed the story of the Three Little Pigs and answered multiple different questions.
First, we listed what details were not expected by the author that we would have expected to be provided. Additionally, by listing these details we can also determine if the characters are flat, round, dynamic or static characters.
Next, we found what perspective the text was in to determine whether the story is third, second or first person. The story is in third person because the text has words like ‘he’ and ‘his.’
Afterward, we wrote what we would have done differently in the story if we were in the wolf’s position, and I stated that if I was the wolf, I would have only eaten the other two little pigs because the result of their laziness and lack of wanting to build themselves safer houses and slack off would show they are not as clever as the third pig and I would eat them instead of trying to eat the third pig.
Finally, we used our inferring skills and other reading strategies to make statements using evidence from the text. Once inferrence I made was that the wolf is smart because regardless if he was successful or not, he tried to trick the last pig into thinking he was his friend and invited him to outside activities so the pig would let down his guard.
I enjoyed this task because I used many reading strategies to strengthen my understanding of character analysation and observing how authors can characterise people in stories.
