  2. Character Terms Homework
    1. Let’s think about the character terms we can apply to George Bergeron:
      1. George Bergeron is a flat character because readers only know that he is kind and intelligent. He is a static character because he does not change in the story.
      2. George Bergeron is not a protagonist or antagonist because he does not move the action forward or work against the action. He is not a stock character because he does not act like the stock “father” character.
