First off: Neither the students nor the teacher need to know anything about Dungeons and Dragons to take part in this lesson (I myself have never really played).
The alignment chart format provides a unique way for students to think critically about characters and their roles in a literary work. In this lesson, students walk through some discussion and inferential exercises that get them familiar with the concept of character alignment, then in groups they create their own alignment chart for the characters in the work they are reading (in my example, Shakespeare's Julius Caesar). This is a cooperative learning, higher order thinking, text-based, post-reading strategy.
Detailed teacher to teacher instructions on first and last slide, plus in notes section of each slide. I have left the document editable so you can adjust to your own lessons and class readings, as well as correct any font or formatting errors that may have occurred during upload to TPT.
