Using this handout I linked above, the instructor can design an ongoing activity in a reading class. Students can use the character development reading log to record the character they read in the book. To make this activity more language focused, the instructor can ask students to specifically pay attention to the language J.K. Rowling used when she describe the appearance and the motion of the character. By the time students finish the book, they should have at least 10 characters in their logs and they should be able to identify what words are often used to describe villains and heroes. With the language they accumulated, they will create a character of their own and describe the appearance, the motion, the habit, the behavior of the character.

This activity is inspired from a lesson by Traci Gardner. Here is the link of the original lesson.
