Do Narrators Have Too Much Power?

🔓 This is an unlocked sample! Byrdseed.TV is open for new memberships through May 31st, 2024. Join today!


Students will decide what characters think about their narrators. Do story-tellers have too much power?


  1. Students choose three to five stories, noting the type of narrators in each.
  2. Students write down evidence that the narrator is abusing their power and what the character might have to say about it.
  3. Finally, students turn their ideas into a short conversation between the characters.


The registration window closes on May 31st, 2024
