Who: All periods
Set-Up: Many would agree that Samneric is the most interesting character (or characters) on the island because they seem to resemble the typical human choice: fit into the crowd so you don’t get hurt for trying to be a hero/leader.
- Take a look at Matt Langdon’s “Hero Workshop” blog where he wrote an interesting story (link to his “Please Don’t Be A Bystander” entry) about an 85 year old man in England who single-handedly stopped 2 sledgehammer-wielding thieves from breaking into a store.
- Write a reaction to the man’s own quoted explanation of why he got involved, as well as why you think he made a choice that nobody else on that sidewalk did.
Length: 7+ sentences
P.S. for Periods 1, 2, & 3 only:
Mr. Long was proud to see that that Matt wrote a greatt reaction to having a Skype video chat with you guys last week. I think you’ll appreciate it, too.
Feel free to also leave a comment on his blog (although this is not for credit; do it if you’re simply appreciative of how impressed he was by you and your follow-up blog comments).
