This resource includes a set of 5 different worksheets entitled, 'Character Traits - What do they look like in action?' with the answer keys provided. Students will have the opportunity to analyse and identify a set of character traits using the language clues of dialogue and description in a number of written statements. The work sheets are designed to be completed by students independently. This resource aims to deepen and enrich students' understanding of the importance of characterisation and how dialogue and description contribute to the development of characters in stories.
All materials necessary for a number of lessons are provided and ready to be printed.
As there are five different content sets, teachers can plan to use these activities in a number of ways across different learning contexts.
* Whole class with the teacher guiding the process.
* Group work - Rotational based groups – the activity can be one of a number of activities around writing or language based activities, or students can rotate across the 5 different worksheets.
* Working in pairs to ‘share and collaborate’ together. This may be more suitable for younger grades.
This activity can also be utilized as a formative or summative piece of assessment. Students’ work sheets can be collected and assessed by the teacher or teacher assistant using the answer keys that are provided.
There is also an Australian spelling version provided if necessary.
