This is a multi-slide Smartboard presentation designed to be used as a mini lesson to teach students how to analyze a character beyond what is printed on the pages of a book. Students will examine characters' thoughts, words, actions, feelings, etc to learn more about the character. Multiple graphic organizers are used and there is a word document embedded in the presentation that students can use to record their findings. There are also extension questions that can be used to stretch thinking beyond the words on the page. I usually use this lesson over the course of 3-4 days with different characters in a story.
