Interpreting the Story: Focus on Characterization

The inner drive, ambition, and obsession of the complex main character in Brennan Stasiewicz’s “Prophets,” are the focus of a post-reading discussion. Class members record words that reveal something about Jim Charlton’s personality. Using these clues, the class’s challenge is to determine why Charlton might be trying so hard to prove himself. Discussion questions and extensions are included with the plan. The story is readily available on the Internet.
