You are presenting your advertisements tomorrow. I expect that you will DRESS the part. You should become your character fully. I would like you to draw what each of your characters look like. What do they wear? Use the paper and colored pencils at the front of the room.
Under the drawing, or on a separate piece of paper, write a thorough description of each character. What do they sound like, act like, talk like? Is there something they say that reveals who they are? Or, something they do? What are their character traits?
