Your class is writing a book or creating a play. You need to develop characters and you want a structured way to approach it. Why not use a database in Moodle.
Here we are going to use a Moodle database to allow the students to create their characters and to experiment with them. Each student is to create a character and enter it in the database. You can set it up however you like but I have offered a suggestion below:
- Body Type
- Noticeable Features
- Brief history
- Brief outline
Once the students have entered their characters then you can turn on the comments feature in the Moodle database activity and the students will use this to role play the characters.
You could make it so that students can only talk in character and must play the character they created. They must begin each post they make with:
Or you could get students to pretend to be reporters when posting comments on other students entries and they must post questions that the creator of the entry must reply to in character.
This activity will allow students to have fun creating and developing characters.
