Put a fun spin on analyzing character by looking at arcs, archetypes, and journeys. The lesson and activities in this resource are designed so you can pick and choose. You can dip your toes in the water to give your students an introduction to the concepts, or take a deep dive that requires your students to really explore arcs, archetypes & journeys. These could be perfect as end of the year/semester  assessments too,  as they require students to reflect on the things that they learned while they were reading in your class, 

While these were designed for independent reading & reading workshop, you could easily adapt the assignments to use with any class novel.

You can get a look at what is in the resource by downloading the preview.
