THIRD NINE WEEKS: CHARACTER SKETCH

For this nine weeks project, you will write a 3-paragraph character sketch of one main character from the novel you read. A character sketch focuses on describing an important character. When I read your character sketch, I should be able to visualize the character. I should be able to see what he or she looks like, as well as understand important aspects of his or her personality. You will need to turn in the chart and the final essay in order to receive full credit. (No credit will be given for information copied directly from the internet.)

1. INTRODUCTION—(3 Sentences minimum)


  • Name the title and the author.

  • Introduce the character and write your thesis statement.


2. BODY—USE THE INFORMATION FROM YOUR CHART (8 Sentences minimum)

  • Describe the character using vivid and precise language.

  • Include as many of the following aspects as possible: appearance, how the character changes, personality, strengths, weaknesses, and goals.

  • Include any other interesting or important information about the character.


3. CONCLUSION—(3 Sentences minimum)

  • Summarize the main points made in the body of the essay.

  • Make a final, strong statement about the character.

This is NOT a plot summary! Only include events from the book if they relate directly to your description of the character.
