These four character analysis tools can be used with any piece of literature. These character graphic organizers were created to scaffold understanding of how characters influence other components of the story such as the theme and other characters.
These organizers will get students writing and thinking about the literature they read, specifically dealing with characters. They are perfect exit tickets, brainstorming tools, or springboards for writing assignments. I created these to break down the standard CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RL.9-10.3.
You can see the character graphic organizers in the thumbnails and preview. You will receive these in a Powerpoint for students to add digital elements. You will also receive these in individual PDFs for printing or easy uploading to Google Classroom. I have also included a page of teaching ideas.
1. Blooming character: Start students with the basics by identifying the multiple components of a complex character.
2. Theme development: Students will decide on the story's theme and find support for how characters develop that theme.
3. Complex character: Students will analyze how a complex character shapes other characters.
4. Motivation: Students will look at a character's motivation and find support that explains how the character has intrinsic and extrinsic motivators.
These character graphic organizers resemble infographics to give a modern and older look for older students.
