This product was originally developed to coordinate with the Lucy Calkins Reading Units of Study, Unit 3 Character Studies, Session 12, "Noticing How the Character Resolves his/her Biggest Problems." However, this activity can be used to those teachers wanting to expand readers' knowledge of story elements, character studies and character analysis. It can be used with any book and can be completed as a class, as a partner activity or independently. This will help teachers assess their students' knowledge on story elements, character traits and character analysis. Evidence from the text must be used and explained in a written response. I used this as a small group activity after finishing our current read-aloud book, Because of Winn Dixie.
