The first part, where we filled in the definitions about what a protagonist and antagonist are (the hero/villain of a story). Then we brainstormed a list of possible character traits that each type of character might have:
Protagonist: trustworthy, honest, loyal, courageous, brave, thoughtful, proud (but not too proud...), generous, determination, perseverance, smart,
Antagonist: desperate, destructive, threatening, harsh, unkind, proud (as in too proud), a little crazy maybe, wicked, smart,
Then we discussed examples of these characters in literature/stories/movies we are familiar with:
Protagonist: Percy Jackson, Harry Potter, Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella
Antagonist: Kronos/Luke, Voldemort, The Big Bad Wolf, Evil Step Sisters
Add a few more of your own to the previous lists. :)
The BACK of the worksheet is where we discussed the villains that oppose our forces of good in the Bomb book we're reading. For example, FDR and Truman are the good guys....who are they fighting against? Obviously Hitler and Japan's prime minister. But who is opposing Oppenheimer? (Think: who is in charge of the German bomb project?) Try to think of the arch nemesis for each hero listed. Did we miss any? Add them. A controversial one was Harry Gold. He's painted by Sheinkin to be somewhat sympathetic, so what if HE is a protagonist? THen who is against him? (The FBI of course!)
Choose one of the sets of characters from the list then and pretend they are larger than life super heros and super villains. What kind of out of the ordinary powers might they have to help them in their battle for good/evil? X-Ray vision to better see the files? Super human hearing? Laser vision? Flight? Think of what kind of skills or tools these "heros" and "villains" would have to make them more fictionalized and comic book worthy.
I hope that helps!!! Good luck! I'll be around school in the morning if anyone needs to stop and chat, but remember, I'm in that math meeting ALL day so there WILL be a sub!
