Personality of a Character: Gollum /  The Hobbit / Character Description

Personality of a Character: Gollum / The Hobbit / Character Description

LO: Understand how writers portray character personality through writing. This is a lesson based on exploring the techniques a writer uses to show a characters personality and requires pupils to use the evidence from the text extract I have included from the book 'The Hobbit' it is an excellent extract featuring the character 'Gollum.' The Powerpoint I have made goes through the process of... S (speech) A (actions) D (description) Children can then annotate their text accordingly and / or draw the character with annotations. Highly adaptable for many ages. The 1970's version of the hobbit features a similar conversation on YouTube. BONUS I have included a snippet of the text from 'The Hobbit' an activity for children to highlight all the parts of the text that describe the hobbit / wizard and the house. They then draw a picture to match their highlights. The results can be compared to the artists impression I have included.
