Tip for Teachers and Aspiring Authors:

Tip 1: This video explains and provides examples of the characteristics of engaging characters. Even if a story has a wonderful plot, readers will lose interest unless it has engaging characters. Great stories are stories that have characters that we care about and are interested in.  In other words, readers want stories that have engaging characters.

Tip 2: Teachers, after showing this video to your students, you can use the Creating Engaging Charcter Attribute slides provided below to review the attributes of engaging characters with your students.
