This worksheet invites creative exploration through the construction of a doppelganger, a fascinating concept that allows for deep character development and comparison. The activity is divided into sections that guide the student in crafting a narrative around a main character and their double. It begins by prompting the student to name the main character and their doppelganger, setting the stage for the creation of two interconnected yet distinct identities. Students are encouraged to flesh out these personas with detailed descriptions, contemplating not just the physical resemblance but also the attributes that will make each character stand out.
Following the establishment of character profiles, the worksheet delves into the function and nature of the doppelganger within the story. Here, students can articulate the purpose their doppelganger serves—is it a shadowy counterpart, an alternate personality, or perhaps a metaphorical reflection of the main character’s inner struggles? The final section is dedicated to a comparative analysis, urging students to draw lines of similarity and divergence between the character and their doppelganger. This exercise is designed to refine students’ analytical skills and their ability to articulate complex ideas, all while engaging their imaginative faculties to create a compelling doppelganger narrative.
