Main Activity - Character Description


Read the extra information about the Ariel and Caliban from The Tempest in the attachment below, and have a look at the pictures. 


Jot down notes of ideas about either Ariel or Caliban. From the story you read on Monday and the notes in the attachment, look for:

  • description
  • role in story
  • text evidence
  • actions
  • quotes
  • what others say about them
  • relationship to others
  • pictures 

Then use your notes to draft your character description. Proof read own work and make first changes of spelling and punctuation a different coloured pen.


For Mild I would expect your descriptions to be based more on the pictures and for Hot I would expect your writing to be more based on the text.
