Conflicts (How would you describe the relationships?  What problems do characters have with each other and why?  What other elements are in conflict with each other?)
Setting (What do the woods symbolize?  What does Athens symbolize?)
--Vocabulary (Keep a running list of words you don't know and type their definitions)

c. Before the end of class, you will also want to fill in the other side of your pink character map.
