LI: to describe a character using our knowledge from the text.
We explored characterisation which includes the traits, features, personality and physical appearence of fictional characters specifically in children’s literature. I chose to describe the wolf from Wolves, Little Red Riding Hood and Three Little Pigs using my sensory imagery to give my description a more powerful meaning.
This reading challenge was established to make our reading group understand more about character builds and how author’s characterise a figure to influence the way the audience reacts to that character. I found that most commonly, if wolf characters are painted in good light they are usually misunderstood or young characters.
In conclusion, I found this T-shaped literacy activity helpful and enjoyable to carry out because I developed more understanding of characterisation and personalities that I can use in my writing to make it more powerful.
