This FREE resource can be used along with any text to focus on character analysis, specifically character motivation. This resource can be adapted to different grade levels and abilities by:
1. filling in certain boxes and having students complete only the blank boxes.
2. having students either directly quote the text or use details from the text to provide evidence.
I have used this graphic organizer with chapter books, short stories, and read-alouds. Students can complete these graphic organizers as a class, in small groups, or individually, making this a flexible resource that can be used for instruction, check for understanding, or assessment.
