Materials


Procedure:

Students should read the lesson, and complete the worksheet. As an option, teachers may also use the lesson as part of a classroom lesson plan.


Excerpt from Lesson:

Before writing a story, it's important to know who your characters are. 

You can decide what the character likes and dislikes.  You can decide how the character looks.  You can decide what type of person the character is.

There are two different ways to describe how a character is developed. 

Characters are either static or dynamic. 

Static characters are characters that stay the same throughout the story. 

Dynamic characters change.  Basically, they "learn a lesson".

Examples of a dynamic character would be a "villain" who decides it's better to do good or a defiant kid who realizes that parents do know what they are talking about.
