  22. PRACTISE QUESTIONS • Think back to a character that you successfully portrayed in your Standard Grade Drama Course. Describe that Character. (3marks) • List five characterisation techniques you used, or could have used, to develop this character. (5 marks) • Choose one from the list above and say how this technique helped you, or might have helped you, to develop a greater understanding of this character (4 marks)

  23. Candidates may include standard character card details such as name, age, occupation, personality, appearance, relationships, hobbies/interests etc. • 3 marks for a description which summarises the character succinctly but fully. • 2 marks for a description which gives basic information but is not fully informative. • 1 mark for a brief, unhelpful, fairly superficial description. Techniques listed in the Body of Knowledge are: • character cards • improvisation • role-play • hot seating • voices in the head • writing in role • thought tracking • thought tunnel. • 1 mark for each correct technique. Accept no others. Be alert to inclusions that are not on this list e.g. angel and devil, and to confusion with conventions. Do not give marks for any technique not on the list above. No mark for choice. If more than one is selected, mark the better response. • 1 mark for each valid point made about how the chosen technique helped develop a better understanding of the character.
