Mrs. Satterwhite's Pre-Ap ENG II classes recently completed a big project.

Pre-AP English II classes participated in a Reluctant Hero project the last few weeks. The students were divided into groups. Each group chose a protagonist from one of the stories we have read so far this year. Each protagonist was a “reluctant hero” in his/her respective story. The groups had to imagine that their protagonist was running as a presidential nominee (in current time USA). Each group completed a character analysis, examining their character’s strengths and weaknesses and comparing their character to the other protagonists. The groups also had to research current political issues and determine what position their character would take on the issues (based on their character’s personality & actions in their story). Finally, they groups designed a campaign slogan & poster and wrote a campaign speech for their protagonist. On the appointed day, each of the protagonists delivered their campaign speech (in character—complete with costumes) in front of the class and a panel of judges. Judges & class members voted on the presidential nominee. Pictured below are just a few examples.
