CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT –
Wondering what you can write about your character? Name, age and job at this level is not enough! You need to prove you have DEVELOPED your character and made decisions about their life, including creating a back story for them. Think about their life out with the drama too – education, work, social life, hobbies, other relationships, attitudes and beliefs – all of these are important even if they don’t feature in the drama itself.
Here is a character card with some things you could consider…
You should also do research to ensure you are presenting your character correctly – what is it like to be a police officer? What are the vows taken by nuns/priests? How does a family cope with the loss of a child? You need to find out so you can use these ideas to create and develop your character and ensure they are convincing and believable.

Here’s the question you will be asked to answer on Monday when evaluating the drama’s you have just presented. There’s a little extra guidance too to help you formulate your best answers. Remember it’s all about the detail – you are writing for an examiner who has no idea what you have done throughout this process, so tell them everything!
