English 9: Midsummer Night’s Dream Character Analysis

For a unit in English, we studied William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. After we finished our unit, we would complete a character trait analysis of a character within the play. This project would be carried out in groups of four. Literary paragraphs would be split between the group members, as well as the task to create a central image that would display our group’s representation of our character. Our group chose to analyze the traits of Titania.

Communication and Collaboration (3)

I respond to the work or ideas of my peers in a way that is compassionate and productive

At the very beginning, my groupmates and I were deciding how we wanted to divide up the tasks. My group members wanted me to create a central image because of my strength in the arts. At first, I was hesitant, but I agreed because I didn’t want to let my group members down. Since I like art so much, I would be the most comfortable and efficient in creating a central image in my group. My group members would be able to focus on writing the literary paragraphs without worrying about having to create a central image.

I determine and use the most effective medium to present my work

I decided to use watercolor paints for my central image because watercolor is a medium that takes very little time to dry. I believed that if I used watercolor, I would be able to include very fine details without spending too much time. Watercolors also have a very calming feel and has the ability to create flowing and vibrant colors, as well as sharp and clear lines.
