"A Day's Wait" by Ernest Hemingway Hey! Before you begin reading the story, we want you to watch these movies. They will teach you ALL THERE IS TO KNOW (well...maybe not EVERYTHING) about CHARACTERS and CHARACTERIZATIONS.
After you've watched the movies, you'll need to write down a few things , okay? Start a new page in your English notebook. 1. The story that you are about to read is called "A Day's Wait".What do you think the title means? WRITE YOUR ANSWER IN YOUR NOTEBOOK. 2. Now that you've thought about what the title might mean, can you guess what the story is about? You already know that it is about a boy, his father, and what it means to be brave. Make a prediction! WRITE YOUR ANSWER IN YOUR NOTEBOOK. 3. In a few moments, you are going to be learning about CHARACTERS in stories, and how we describe them. Try to PREDICT what the characters in this story are like. WRITE YOUR ANSWER IN YOUR NOTEBOOK.
Don't worry, here's an example to help you out (of course, you're MUCH SMARTER than THIS guy!)
