                   THIS QUESTION IS TO BE COMPLETED ON A SEPARATE WORD DOCUMENT!!!  ALL YOU NEED TO DO HERE IS RECOGNIZE THIS IS A QUESTION ON YOUR EXAM AND TO MAKE SURE YOU COMPLETE IT BEFORE YOU LEAVE TODAY. This year we have met several interesting characters.  We discussed Tyler Miller, Hanna, Yoda, Chip Milbury, Bethany Milbury, Ava Benitez, Steve Harmon, Romiette, Julio, Romeo, Juliet, and a few others.  Here is what you are to do:   Paragraph 1 – choose a character and discuss a problem(s) they faced and how they overcame them.   Paragraph 2 – compare and contrast this character to you (or another character if you’d like).   Paragraph 3 – tell me what you learned from this character and how it affects your life.   Remember to use complete sentences, proper spelling, capitalization, and punctuation.  I would suggest that you use a topic sentence, at least 3 supporting detail sentences, and a conclusion sentence for each paragraph.  I would also suggest that you not skip this as it counts for a good portion of your exam!!! Here is how the essay is scored (so you can sort of determine what your score will be!!) 10 points per paragraph = 3 paragraphs x 10 points each = 30 points total.             3 points = topic sentence             2 points = each supporting detail sentence (so you need 3 of these sentences)             1 point = conclusion sentence
