Product Description

This sort is a great activity for students to show their knowledge of identifying how the author’s choice of language gives the reader more information about characters, setting, and the plot of a story. I personally used this sort in my classroom early on in the unit to assess whether my students were able to identify whether the language used by the author helped to develop the character, setting, or plot of a story.

This is aligned with Virginia Reading SOL 4.5a.
