In this 4-page product, students will work on revealing the external (physical) and internal (personality, beliefs, motivations, intelligence, emotions, etc.) aspects of a character from the story under study.
For the first one, Fleshing Out the Character, they will cite details in the story, write them on slips of paper and glue them to the blank head on the handout to form a body.
For the second one, Tee-Shirts: They Represent, students will design a tee-shirt to wear on the teacher-designated day. Along with this, they will write a paragraph explaining their design choice.
On the designated day, the students will wear their tee-shirts and adhere their Fleshing Out the Character quote portrayals to the bulletin board. A group picture of the students sporting their character tees will add to the bulletin board.
This activity appeals to all students on some level as it involves written work, analytic thinking and reasoning skills, and artistic creativity.
