Speech Coaches Heather Neumann and Kristi Eskelund tell their students that they have to KNOW their characters before they can really succeed in their Interpretive Speeches. The ability to jump into one’s shoes doesn’t “poof” happen. Skilled Interpers and Actors have to think, and sometimes research their characters so they can accurately depict or even understand them! These worksheets become an essential tool for students to help analyze important character traits in developing their interpretive presentation.
Included in the worksheets are…
– Character Analysis – traits, physicality, etc. Things to think about when developing your characters.
– Tips for practicing
– Characteristics to go through
– Character Development
Worksheets can be used for individual and family use over and over again. We reccommend using them for each and every character in your speech.

“I am a Speech Coach. Every year I look for a Character Worksheet for my students to have a better understanding of their characters. These worksheets are exactly what I have been looking for! They cover all of the important elements. This will be used over and over again.” -Parent Coach
“WOW – this is a super helpful document! I was familiar with the concept of character development, but this flushed everything out so thoroughly! I can see how using this could separate those performers who have done the work and those who haven’t.” -Parent
