Help students track character development throughout a novel so that when it is time to write a character development essay, they have the evidence they need. Even if an essay is not the end goal, teach students to monitor character development with this trifold bookmark. The bookmark is set up so that students are able to document evidence found in their novel multiple times in each section. The student does not need to annotate the novel if it is a class set or write down the quote in a notebook. The great aspect of this bookmark is that as a teacher you are able to easily grade the bookmark and provide feedback regarding their evidence/character development and understanding it prior to students finishing the novel. There is an additional character trait graphic organizer that can be copied to the back of the bookmark for additional analysis or used separately. The graphic organizer requires students to label different characters and explain why that character fits that trait.
