Year 8/9: Developing Characterisation

I taught this lesson as for a unit on how to write historical fiction, however you can adapt this resource for any creative writing unit.

Focus of the lesson:

  • Developing depth in characterisation
  • Understanding the scales of characterisation to create interesting characters
  • Worksheets included in PP
  • Differentiated extension tasks with student voice and choice at the end

Note that students will need either their own computers or some device to conduct a bit of research and to complete the Jigsaw activity (three videos to watch). Right click the videos on the photos on the PP to access them (the links are embedded).
