Supporting characters need detail and characteristics just like a main character. Keep your budding authors entrenched in detail as they write their novels. This lesson focuses on developing supporting characters using personal connections and scaffolding. Learners first consider details about a close friend, and then participate in a whole-class character creation, complete with a large drawing. There are guiding questions to get learners thinking comprehensively. Finally, writers create their own characters for their novels using an attached worksheet packet. Invite engagement and humor into your classroom!
