Character development prompts


These prompts on the whiteboard were used during character brainstorms once the puppets were completed. Beside each puppet was a sheet at which the class took turns - by rotating around the desks, three minutes approx at each puppet -  to jot down ideas of character. If they found this difficult they could use the prompts. They then folded over their contribution to keep it secret so the next participant had a ’clean slate’. At the end the students returned to their own puppet and chose from the other students’ ideas to develop/enrichen their own. They then came together in their groups to make interconnections between the different puppets and new ideas to develop their original storyboard.
