Writing Skills: Character Descriptions

$ 4

This writing activity is user-friendly for both students and teachers/tutors/speech language pathologists. It not only teaches students to write a sophisticated and comprehensive character description essay, but also shows students how they can infer information about a character's personality and perspective from that character's actions and dialogue. Given a short novel excerpt, students are first tasked with attributing adjectives to one of the characters by analyzing his or her actions and words, and then use those adjectives to write a character description by following a written scaffold. This strategy and scaffold can apply to almost any character analysis writing assignment. Included are extensive notes on the provided excerpt and a sample character analysis essay following the scaffold to aid in teaching.
