PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This project explores character analysis using the acronym F.A.C.T.S. Students analyze characters from the novel, Bridge to Terabithia, use a graphic organizer (included) to get started, and complete word clouds to display their work. The PowerPoint presentation with related graphic organizer, explains character analysis in detail using the acronym, F.A.C.T.S. This acronym helps students analyze characters through the character’s feelings, actions, character description, thoughts, and words. Specifically, characters in the novel Bridge to Terabithia are examined, however, the project can be used for any characters of any trade book or story, by simply changing the color schemes on the PowerPoint, and choosing an alternative way to display the final project. Included in this PowerPoint presentation are:

• Character Analysis explanation using F.A.C.T.S.
• Character Traits vs. Physical Traits
• Character Traits vs. Character Emotions
• Positive vs. Negative Character Traits
• Sample character traits
• Character analysis of “Miss Edmunds”
• Graphic Organizer for F.A.C.T.S. character analysis
• Directions for completing graphic organizers
• Directions for creating word clouds
• Completed project samples

NOTE: Be sure to notice the “Notes” section of the PowerPoint for text references, page numbers of cited evidence, and instructional notes and suggestions.

After reading Bridge to Terabithia, this project is used as a culminating activity, wherein students analyze the characters of Jess and Leslie. Using a graphic organizer (included as part of the PowerPoint presentation, and as a separate black and white copy for student use), students cite evidence that support their choices, then transfer that information into paragraph form. Finally, students publish their writing and create word clouds to display their work (examples included).

Our students simply loved this project, and while the F.A.C.T.S. acronym is certainly not new, using it for this project made character analysis easy for them to understand, use, and best of all, they were able to apply what they’ve learned through a fun project that makes a great bulletin board, classroom, or hallway display.

For those using the Reader's Workshop Model, the 'F.A.C.T.S' graphic organizer can be adapted to any book, which comes in very handy for book clubs, small group instruction, or assessing independent readers!
