“Reflect on your inquiry question and how your understanding is changing, becoming more focused, or is it perhaps being reaffirmed by your research. What do you know that you didn’t know when you first started this inquiry?”
The above question will be my focus for my first document of learning. In zip, my original question was, what are the components of a realistic character? After a bit of research, I realized two things. I had not clarified whether I meant the parts of a realistic character or components of a realistic character within a story. Also, I noticed that when making a character, the different components within a character are very complex in themselves. Therefore the crushing awakening I had reached was that my question was a bit too broad. In the end I decided that I would keep my original question, but instead of going in depth into different components, I decided that I would briefly cover each part.
The two parts of my zip will be:
1. What components make a character realistic when creating a character?
2. What makes a character realistic within a story?
Essentially what I’m trying to cover is the process of making a character, and then inserting your character into your story. For my final presentation, I will focus more on the actual creation of the character and spend less time on making the character realistic within the story.
