Adjectives to describe characters

image

An easy way to get youngsters to use the load of adjectives we teach them at school is to make them think about (or link them to) something they enjoy.

During the first sessions of the Reading Workshop we will go through several adjectives describing personality and appearance to find out what type of characters move them.

We will also look into the distinction between flat and round characters as presented by E.M Forster in his book Aspects of the Novel (1927), and use it to classify the characters we find along the workshop.
