Homework: Characters & Setting Sketch Due Today: Alphabetic Diction Final Drafts Agenda: Magazines Characters & Setting Sketch
Using your magazine, pick out two characters that can speak with one another. Cut out the image, glue it to a piece of paper, and write a ½ page character sketch: give them a name, an occupation, physical description, relationship status, hobbies, and other pertinent information. Also keep an eye out for an image that could represent the setting. Sometimes you can find a character in a setting already, but you may have to find a separate image.
Write a description of the setting you chose. What’s the name of the place? Who lives there or what happens there? When is it (time period/year)? Why is it interesting?
