Taking on a character

Wendy MacNaughton

















When working with characterisation, drama provides the perfect medium to bring into workshops. Today, after a character brainstorm, we all took on the persona of someone from the book we are reading at the moment and then had a ‘cocktail party’, where all the characters met one another and got to know each other’s flaws, quirks and greatest desires. At the end of the session, the children then wrote an entry in the secret diaries of their characters and some of them got so involved with this, they wouldn’t even stop when I said writing time was up. That’s what I like to see 😉
