Our Protagonist lesson plan equips students to understand the role that protagonists play in literature and other media. During this lesson, students are asked to work collaboratively and use their creative writing skills to write short stories in which a provided character is the protagonist. Students are also asked to read provided texts and identify the protagonist, the antagonist, and how they knew which was which in order to demonstrate their understanding of the lesson.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define protagonist and identify examples from a story, book, movie, or TV show. The students will also be able to write a short story which includes a protagonist.
