    • The skill lesson we worked on today was character development. One thing we understand better is that character development has help us a lot to understand how characters change from the beginning to the story to the end of the story. This skill will help me be a better reader because we found out how the characters act during and to the end of the story. We are going to remember how to use this skill by keeping it in my mind and using it when reading a story. One piece of advice we would give to someone working with this skills is to find any information they can and follow everything they ask you to do. In order to improve we will need to read the story and see the words that describes how the characters act and change during the story. One more thing we want you to know is that this skill help the character. Also, do not lose focus pay attention on your skill every time your working on it.

    • What it is?
    • Characterization, also called character description, means bringing characters to life in writing. Character description is simply describing what the character is doing, saying, or thinking. They describe it so well it is as if you are the character your self. For example, in the story ‘Shrek’ they described how Shrek was a child and how he would breath fire.
