Rating

This lesson is intended to help students create dynamic characters while working on beginning playwriting skills. It takes students through the steps of creating a non-human character and a scene and then transfers that information into writing an original monologue to perform.  The lesson is easily adaptable to students in grades 5-12 and perhaps lower elementary as well, by adjusting the complexity of the characters created.

An interactive piece is included on the link, allowing students to create their own character charts. A final activity involves students guessing each other based on their use of "strong adjective" descriptions.  All handouts and graphic organizers are readily available on the website.
