…but what do people think when they see this and only this?


From a conversation richard sherman had with current dominguez high school football players

From a conversation Richard Sherman had with current Dominguez High School football players…

“How long is the average NFL career?” Sherman said.

“Seven years,” one player said.

“Ten years,” said another.

“Five years,” said another.

Sherman stopped them.

“Fellas,” Sherman said. “Three and a half years is the average.”

Sherman pinched his fingers together, emphasizing the short period. He then lifted his arms out wide to spread his full, 78-inch wingspan.

“This is the rest of your life,” Sherman said. “Be prepared.”


Phrase vs clause

Phrase vs. Clause

  • A phraseis a group of words.

  • A clause is a group of words that has a subject (Noun/ person or thing doing the action) and a predicate (Verb/action).

  • What is the difference between a phrase and a clause? Clauses may stand alone and hold the main idea of the sentence.

Characterization notes

Characterization Notes

We make inferences about a character based on the information we are given.

An author intentionally chooses what details he/she wants to show us about a character.

Different details = different perception.

The author controls how we view a character!


Day 3 monday

Characterization is the wayan author reveals the character’s personality. There are two different types.

In DIRECT characterization…

the author tells us about the character by giving us facts.

example: The bulldog was fat.

In INDIRECT characterization…

the author shows us about the character by giving us clues.

example: The bulldog couldn’t fit through his doggy door.


Day 3 monday

Indirect or direct?

Ashley could never decide to wear what to school.

Ashley’s was always missing the bus because she tried on so many outfits each morning.

Kevin was his high school basketball team’s leading scorer. He averaged 27 points a game.

Kevin was such a good basketball player that he wanted to play in college.


One way to remember the different indirect characterization techniques authors use is acronym steal

One way to remember the different indirect characterization techniques authors use is acronym STEAL:

  • Speech – what the character says out loud or the way he/she speaks

  • Thoughts – what the character thinks; things other characters can’t hear

  • Effects on others -- what other characters’think or how they feel about the character; how they react to him/her

  • Actions – what the character does

  • Looks – descriptions of the character’s appearance


Day 3 monday

Always ask yourself, “What is the author trying to tell me about the character?” Consider the character’s…

TRAITS: adjectives that describe the character

MOTIVATION: the reason for the character’s actions and thoughts

MAIN CONFLICT: the main problem of the character

RELATIONSHIPS: good or bad connections with other characters
