Activity Overview


Tris Prior’s divergence means that she has three main character traits, rather than one. Ask your students to find examples of Tris demonstrating these traits as a means of practicing character analysis. For each trait, have them depict a scene, followed by an explanation of Tris’ character in that scene. Adapt this activity to a personal response project by asking your students to choose the three factions with which they identify best and depict their own actions in support of this.

Example Divergent Character Analysis

ERUDITE

Tris shows her erudite side during the capture the flag game. Instead of arguing over how to find their opponents, she cleverly climbs the Ferris wheel in order to get a view of enemy territory. She then organizes an attack plan that leads her team to victory.


ABNEGATION

Tris's abnegation connection is her selflessness. Although she does not feel selfless enough to remain in Abnegation, she can't help trying to help others. When her friend Al is forced to stand still while Four throws knives at him, Tris volunteers to take his place.


DAUNTLESS

Tris proves that she is dauntless early on by becoming the "first jumper". She is the first initiate to boldly jump three stories down into an unseen net below.
