Writing Character Sketches in Mr. Mikesell’s Class
Have you ever found it hard to tell someone that you appreciate them? Seventh grade students in Mr. Trent Mikesell’s class at Springville Junior High recently did this by writing character sketches. According to Mr. Mikesell, kids chose someone they admire, usually in their family, and wrote about their “appearance, actions, thoughts and feelings, even their speech.” They typed them in the computer lab. They printed the character sketches out and gave them to the person they wrote about.
