Description

These graphic organizers can be paired with any text to help your AP® Lit students get the most out of studying character. Each is aligned with a different skill from the AP® Lit CED and help your students make observations, connections, and move towards complex analysis. Each ends with the creation of a writing prompt and an optional writing assessment.

This resource covers all of the Character Essential Skills from the AP® Lit CED:

  • CHR 1.A - Identify and describe what specific textual details reveal about a character, that character’s perspective, and that character’s motives.
  • CHR 1.B - Explain the function of a character changing or remaining unchanged.
  • CHR 1.C - Explain the function of contrasting characters.
  • CHR 1.D - Describe how textual details reveal nuances and complexities in characters’ relationships with one another.
  • CHR 1.E - Explain how a character’s own choices, actions, and speech reveal complexities in that character, and explain the function of those complexities.

The download includes 10 graphic organizers (5 separate skills or lessons), each in printable PDF and with access to interactive Google Slides for those learning online or who wish to type. The download also includes a teacher's guide with additional resource suggestions. Because these can be paired with any text, the graphic organizers do NOT come with answer keys.

Use these skill-based activities for breaking down a particular skill, enhancing lessons, adding to literature circles, or for test prep! Because they can pair with anything, the opportunities are limitless!

Analyze how an author’s choices concerning how to structure specific parts of a text (e.g., the choice of where to begin or end a story, the choice to provide a comedic or tragic resolution) contribute to its overall structure and meaning as well as its aesthetic impact.
Analyze a case in which grasping point of view requires distinguishing what is directly stated in a text from what is really meant (e.g., satire, sarcasm, irony, or understatement).
