Get out your notebook. Write: 5/17/19 Page ____ “Visual Notes for Characters”

On this page (or another that you glue/staple in) please create some visual notes that will help identify the relationships of the characters, what their personality is like, and what major things they have said or done. Some ideas for these visual notes are on the board, though you can choose your own way.

EACH character, after they are identified and THOROUGHLY described, should then be given a theme song. Choose a theme song (or walk-up song for baseball fans) from your own music tastes or pop culture that you feel fits the character and what they are about.

There are FIFTEEN characters total. I will stamp these for full credit of 20 points on Monday.
