Here is a visual close reading tool that allows students to track two characters’ emotions as they read through the beginning, middle and end of a story and observe how the characters change. Students write the reason for the emotion and what caused the character’s feelings to change as they create a line graph. Character analysis question sheets fosters more detail and additional critical thinking. This is a great guided reading lesson for cause/effect and inferencing. Students can also work on the assignment independently, with a partner, or in a group, once they understand the concept. Sample answers are included that go with the book The Egyptian Cinderella by Shirley Climo. Essential question posters and a “Rules for Discussion” poster gives you materials to reinforce respectful collaboration and discussion.
