Abstract

Year 7 students develop an understanding of the concept of character. By analysing characters in an animation and in short stories, they learn that characterisation combines with events and settings to create narrative, use resources such as description and dialogue, and that characters may be complex, having a range of characteristics or be simple with one salient feature. They apply their understanding of characters through writing short pieces as well as an extended narrative.
