Reflection: Performance Tasks Creating a Resume for a Main Character in The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian - Section 4: Wrap Up


The student's project I included is an example of one that I feel clearly illustrates an understanding of the main character.  For example, the Motto the student created for Arnold was both accurate and creative: "live life to the fullest because only you can mess it up."  This student demonstrated that he understood the perseverance the character clearly possessed to succeed in life while dealing with the adversities he faced in the novel, and his motto also included an example of the characters sense of humor.

This student also included a novel video of a person who is supposed to be acting like Arnold's best friend Rowdy.
