In the story Stella By Starlight, what technique does Sharon Draper use to convey Stella's personality?
The technique Sharon Draper uses to convey Stella's personality is thoughts to show she is aware of racial differences. As Stella and her friends walk to school they notice Mountain View School,(the white school) according to the text Stella thinks to herself how wonderful their school is and how she bets they have neat desks and chairs to sit in. Stella and her friends arrive at Mrs. Cooper's candy store, she notices Mrs. Cooper gives everyone the same candy, based on what I read, as the children file out of the store each child is allowed to get one silver-wrapped chocolate from the basket, no matter what school they attend. Draper uses thoughts to convey Stella's personality by showing how aware she is of racial differences.
___________ is a narrative that takes abstract ideas or behaviors - good or bad, wise or foolish- and attempts to make them concrete and striking.
