9B: Developing your hero

Today Ms. Gummoe led the class in some exercises meant to help you develop your hero for the first draft of your story, which is due Wednesday. Ask Ms. Gummoe for a Facebook profile template to help you create your character.

If you’re still having trouble coming up with a hero, here are some helpful tips:

-Find a myth/story/legend/old story that you like that you could update or base a new hero on (like how Superman comes from Moses, or Thor comes from Norse mythology, or how Wonder Woman comes from Roman mythology)
-Is your hero a boy or a girl?
-How old is your hero?
-Where does he or she live?
-Does your hero have important friends or family? Are they alive or dead?

Take it from there. See Ms. Gummoe or I tomorrow if you’re still stuck.
