Character description

Can you tell me about your character? 
Lesson 1. 

I would like you to write me a character description based on a character from the book you're currently reading. The character can be one of your own choice completely (we have done lots of work on different characters and places). 


I would like you to consider the following:

  • What does your character look like? 
  • Are they kind? scary? angry?........
  • What matters most to your character? 
  • Do they have a purpose? What does your character do? Are they trying to achieve something? (Think of Liam from COSMIC) 
  • Consider the Language and word choices you will use? 
  • Use a dictionary or thesaurus? You can access both of these online. 


Perhaps when you're done you could draw an accompanying picture? 


Please send me any work and I will happily look over it :)
