Product Description
This graphic organizer will help teachers and students show how characters in fictional text are affected by various events. These events cause characters to think, say, and do various things that elicit a personal transformational within the character. Students are asked to link a character trait to each event, based on how he/she reacts to those determined events. By doing so, the student will be able to easily see how each character grew and changed- how they TRANSFORMED into a better version of themselves by triumphing over struggle or defeat. Consequently, this analysis will assist students to develop a THEME of the story as well.
