Increase your students reading comprehension and understanding of characterization! Use these charts with any reading selection (novel, short story, reading section, chapter, or picture book.) These charts will help your students analyze a character citing the different types of characterization. I often use these charts multiple times throughout a reading selection or novel to illustrate how a dynamic character changes and evolves. These charts work great as a solitary assignment, a whole class review, or as a partner review.
I've included a chart that is filled out with examples to give you an idea of how I might use it in class. Go over the example chart before beginning and leave it up on the screen for students to reference as they work. The examples on this page help students to delve deeper into the text to find quality details.
