Lesson 13: Character-Driven Action

Essay Question

Flip through The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and make a list of as many significant events as you can. For our purposes, a significant event will be defined as  an event that changes the course of the story. (The Pevensie children get sent out of London to the Professor’s house, Lucy goes through the wardrobe into Narnia, Edmund meets the White Witch, Edmund betrays his siblings, etc.) Once you’ve made your list of events, go through and identify which of those events were things that happened to our main characters, and which events grew out of the characters’ choices.
