Guide your students through the step-by-step process of planning, organizing, and writing a cohesive and thorough character analysis paragraph. Your students will organize and write a character analysis that leads students through close reading of literature, as well as the development and support of a strong claim within the framework of an academic paragraph.
These graphic organizers lead students through the process of identifying a main idea and details, describing character traits, planning a paragraph, and writing a cohesive 8-sentence paragraph.
This Common Core writing activity may be used as both individual and collaborative literary analysis activities. The design of the activity is highly scaffolded and easily adaptable for English language learners (ELD, ESL, EFL, SDAIE).
