This one actually should have been listed before the other two. Call it “The Color Purple, Dramatic Need & Situation”
On a blank sheet of paper that they will hand in, describe the following in one paragraph apiece:
- the dramatic situation of the book, as they understand it so far;
- the main character’s dramatic need; and
- the dramatic premise, and how it has been introduced.
- be sure to write the date and period in the corner.
