This worksheet provides pupils with a word bank of 90 sophisticated adjectives describing the characters of the play. The activities guide them through evaluating each character and the way that they evolve from on act to the next. Ideal as a whole lesson or as homework. Editable and easy-to-follow (ideal for a cover lesson - just add dictionaries!). Extension activity: ask pupils to pair up and argue for the best three adjectives to describe their allocated character at a specific point in the play. Then, each pair joins another pair to argue about the most suitable adjectives. A fantastic way of getting pupils to use new vocabulary as soon as possible.

An incredibly effective AfL tool which empowers pupils to take ownership of their work and see visible progress through redrafting just a section of their writing. I highly recommend showing your pupils the 'Critique and Feedback - the Story of Ausitin's Butterfly' on YouTube to encourage them to be honest and specific when giving peer feedback.
