Student Writer Instructions:
To complete this assignment, you’ll need to write a one-page character sketch of the character whose name you are assigned in the word game. Choose both a character name (the first button) and an "identity element" for that character (the second button). Can you create a character that surprises your reader? Can you create a character who defies stereotypes?
Don’t forget to include the kinds of details used in Oh the Thinks You Can Think! and Stargirl. Remember, it is your job to show your reader your character's identity. Remember- your reader doesn’t know anything about your character. You must make your reader feel like he/she knows a lot about who your character is by the time your writing has finished.
After reading your sketch, your reader should be able to picture your character as a real, existing, and emotional being. And your reader should like your character...just as we like Stargirl.
