You’ve been cast in Fairview! As an actor, you must interpret your character, and then learn live and breathe as that fictional person. Some actors assemble scrapbooks of their characters, as if they were real people. This week, I have assigned you to characters, using the arbitrary criterion of your surname:
- Beverly: Adams – Breedlove
- Dayton: Bruno – Curtis
- Jasmine: de la Pointe – Gittelsohn
- Keisha: Gonzalez – Horvath
- Mack: Jimenez – Marks
- Suze: Mazyck – Rebraca
- Bets: Smith – Thompson
- Jimbo: Trosper – Zerbst
Your task is to imagine your character’s Instagram, which is a social media platform organized around photo sharing. (For example, here’s Jackie Sibblies Drury’s.) For your post, describe your character’s three most recent posts; then name three accounts they’re most proud of following and three they don’t follow but stalk on Instagram. Does anyone verified (i.e., a notable person) follow them?
In addition, what’s on this person’s driver’s license (full name, sex, eyes, height, date of birth — i.e., the barest details by which they are recognized and classified by the state)?
Most importantly, what in the text leads you to these conclusions? Your reading responses are due at noon, Wednesday, January 22. Keep up the spectacular work!
