Comparing Characters

We read about how Ben gave into the peer pressure from Kevin, and then we read about a special artist named Roberto.  They both acted/behaved a certain way at the beginning of their stories.

Did Ben or Roberto change? If so, HOW????

How are Ben and Roberto the same?

How are Ben and Roberto different?

    2. Ben changed at the end because he hurt someone and Roberto changed at the end when he put on some special sandals and painted things.Ben and Roberto are the same because they made people feel sad.Ben is different because he was a bully and Roberto is different because he didnt paint anybody because he only painted pretty things

    6. I think both Ben and Roberto changed in their stories at the end.I also think Ben and Roberto are the same in some ways like when Ben pulled Truman's chair away and truman ended up having to go to the nurse and when Roberto did not paint any ones pictuters.so Ben and Roberto where both mean at the being.they are different because Ben was presherd to do it and Roberto was not he was just mean.Roberto changed because he tried on some sandles and he seen everyone as something butiful and not them as ugly people he saw their grace .Ben changed because he did not know why Kevin had so much power over him and he did not want to listen to Kevin any more

  4. Ben and Roberto did change Ben Changed by Saying sorry to Truman And saying that he was going to change Roberto changed by getting the sandals from the cobbler and the shoes made him BECOME NICER (WHAT).

    Ben and Roberto are different because their stories take place in a different time and place. And they are also different because Ben Is in school and Roberto isn't


    Roberto and Ben have nothing In common. ��

  5. Roberto and Ben changed because at the beginning they were both bullies and they changed into nice people who didn't bully anymore.

    How Roberto and Ben are similar because they were both bullies and they changed into nicer people.

    How they are different is that Ben was probably around 11and Roberto was around his 40's. Another reason they r different is that Roberto changed because he wore another man's shoes, and Ben changed by seeing the end result of what happened after what he did to Trueman. The last reason why their different is that Roberto was in Italy and Ben took place in America.

  6. Yes, they both change because in the beginning they thought they was better then everyone. Then at the end they earned a lesson about how they make people feel. They are allot a like because they thought what they were doing was alright but it was it ,and because the both change at the end of the stories. They are also different because they have different problems and they are different ages. ����

  7. Yes,Ben and Reberto both changed by Ben started to hang out with Truman after Kevin told him to pull his chair. Reberto changed by he was mean then he got new sandels and then he saw the world differently. Ben and Reberto are alike by they are mean then they both change in the end. They are different by Ben is school age and Reberto is in his twenty's.

    Ben and Roberto changed because Ben did something he shouldn't of done so that changed his mind to not be a bully And then Roberto changed by getting new shoes and they changed his mind so finally saw the beauty of everything. They are both kind of mean at first but change at the end.Roberto is different from Ben because someone is forcing Ben to bad things but Roberto was doing bad stuff on his own. Ben was bullying one person Roberto bullied many

    1. Jack J. I disagree,because Ben did not change. In " How Bad Could it Be" it says that Ben WANTS to change.The story doesn't go on, it doesn't have any proof. That's what I think.

  10. I think that only Roberto changed ,because at the end of "How Bad Could it Be" it says that Ben WANTS to change, the story doesn't say that he changed it didn't go on.

    Ben and Roberto are the same, because they both acted mean and rude to other people. They both judged people by the way they acted and looked. Ben hurt Truman by the way he looked and acted, and Roberto wouldn't paint people by the way they looked and acted.They both learned their lesson in the end.

    Ben and Roberto are different, because Ben was a kid and Roberto was a man.Roberto was mean, because he wouldn't paint other people, and Truman was mean, because he bullied other people.Roberto fixed his problems by wearing the sandals and opening his heart, but Ben fixed his problems by walking Truman to the nurse and unstanding that he needed to change.

  11. Yes, I think that Ben and Roberto changed in their stories . Roberto changed because he was mean and rude at the beginning until he got the sandles from the cobbler. Ben changed because at the beginning e was friends with Kevin .Kevin was a bully and wanted to bully Trueman . In art class he was trying to bully truemen then he asked Ben to pull truemens chair. Ben thought that everyone would laugh but they didn't because he was bledding. Ben walked truemen to the nurse and they made up . Both character s are the same because thankful for second chances. They are different because Roberto his setting was a long time a go.Bens setting was modem times.

  15. They both changed and became better people, Ben stopped hanging out with Kevin and stopped being mean to people. Roberto became a better person when he began to love others. Ben and Roberto are similar because they both were mean to someone and treated them badly. They are also similar because they apologized for what they had done. They both had changed because something had occurred to them that made them want to be better than that. They are different because Roberto was mean to many people when Ben was only mean to one person. Ben and Roberto are also different because Roberto wanted to be mean without being pressured into it Ben was pressured into it.

  17. Yes, they both did change Reboerto changed by getting new shoes and seeing the world with his heart and started being nice and started painting the people who wanted to be painted. Ben changed after the incident from making Truman fall and hit his chin and started bleeding because Ben pulled away Truman's chair once he was going to sit down so Ben walked with Truman to the nurse, talked with him, and changed. Well Ben and Reboerto are the same because in the bigining each of there stories they were not being nice to others they were each being bullys,they just wanted to do everything's for there self. Reboerto and Ben are different because one story was about a kid being a bully because he just wanted to be cool and be like his friend Kevn who was also a bully and Ben thought Kevin had so much power or control over him.The other story is about a grown man wanted to be an artist for himself, also its about how Reboerto gets his shoe's mended and it would take a day and so the shoe maker gave him another pair and once he stepped outside he began to see thing with his heart and started to now be nice and paint the people and he is now changed.They both changed!
