Who is the most evil literary villain?

You need to decide on who you think is the most evil literary villain and why? Think about those you have looked at in lessons and from the books that you have read, both at school and at home.

You need to choose your villain and then prepare yourself to argue why your villain is the most evil. You will take part in a balloon debate and must be able to explain why your villain should be the one thrown out of the balloon full of villains!

To do this you will need to research the ‘evil’ and ‘bad’ acts that your villain has committed. You will need to think about how they compare to other villains and how you can persuade people that your villain is the one that beats all others when it comes to being evil.

You must put together all of your reasons and be ready to defend your decision in class.

Week One: Choosing and researching your literary villain. Getting your evidence as to why they are the most evil.

Week Two: Put together your arguments and decide how you are going to persuade the rest of the class that your villain is the most evil. You have to be ready to take your role in the debate in lessons.

Your teacher will give you the date you need to be ready for the balloon debate in class.
