WALT: Develop reading for pleasure through discussion of favourite characters.
I understand what empathy is.
I can identify characters and their traits in books that I read.
I can discuss my favourite characters and describe them in detail.
I can use evidence and reasoning to support my opinion.
Today, I would like you to watch the video below and think about the types of books you like to read. What kind of characters do you like to read about? Do you love a courageous hero or do you enjoy a sneaky villain? Do you like to read about worlds beyond our universe or stories in schools like ours?
After you have watched the video, you will be writing a detailed description of one of your favourite characters from a story that you have read. Include your own opinion and support it with evidence from the story.
