Plot, Character, Setting, and Mood
· Explain how you figured out what your Avatar would look like.
I figured out what my avatar would look like by taking inspiration from the few lines in the book referencing the physical features of the characters in the book. Also, I had a few mental snapshots of what characters looked like by reading how they talked.
· How did you choose the plot points?
I chose the plot points by reading the book and going through the most important parts a few times over to find the plot point that started the chain of events leading to the book’s climax.
· Explain how you figured out the setting in your story. Why is the setting significant to the story?
I found the book’s setting because it was talked about multiple times throughout the book, and the starting chapters explained the most prevalent setting. The setting is significant to the story because it sets the mood, era, theme of the book, etc.
· Explain what the word mood means and how/why you picked the song that you picked?
The word mood means how they feel in a certain situation or the type of situation that the characters are in. I picked the song I picked because the book was fast-paced and had a lot of action and excitement in it.
Core Competency Reflection
In discussions and conversations, I help to build and extend understanding by speaking in simpler words or explaining my words better while engaging in meaningful conversations with my peers.
This is how I select images and words to create an impact for different audiences: By reading the page over and over again and imagining to myself what words would impact me the most if I were the reader reading it for the first time. Pictures are similar I look up multiple pictures online and compare them to see which picture would strike me the most as a reader.
When I need to boost my mood or re-focus, I take a break and go outside for a walk or eat a little snack to help myself forget about work for a little bit and come back energized and focused.
