Practice: Collaborative Paragraph (Remember how we wrote this together in class??)
Let’s practice TE/EA structure by writing a characterization paragraph about Iff the Genie.
Iff the Genie is an anxious character. From the moment Haroun meets Iff the Genie, Iff is frantic with worry. Hearing Haroun’s approach, “The blue-beard whirled about, spun all the way round three times, and disappeared…” (p.55). Without even waiting to discover who was approaching, Iff was so startled that he vanished into thin air. Even when he came back, his words reveal his anxiety. In response to Haroun’s questioning, Iff replied: “’No,’ said the blue-beard sharply. ‘No adults. Rules and regulations, totally forbidden, more than my job’s worth. O, I knew this would be a terrible day.’” Knowing he had to do an unusual job today, Iff was worried from the very beginning, and he takes that anxiety out on Haroun with his sharp tone of voice. Iff’s anxiety allows Haroun to bribe him into helping Haroun go to Gup City on his quest to get his father’s story-telling powers back.
