Product Description
Teaching Character Motivation

Product/Materials Preface:

These English Language Arts Unit Resources come with a 3 page introductory mini-lesson on Characterization and Character Motivation but the accompanying graphic organizers primarily focus on Character Motivation. You can find my parallel resources here:

Inferring Character Traits,

Character Types and Roles, and

Direct and Indirect Characterization

I have provided thirteen (13) unique graphic organizers to help students collect and analyze data on 16 types of character motivations. Because of the variations you can choose from a multitude of forms to help differentiate your instruction.

Some of the organizers focus on one particular character or multiple characters in a work. You can now cater to your students’ needs by pairing students with the right organizer. Complex characters often have more than one motivation so you can challenge your advanced students to draw these motivations out.

When working with your students encourage them to brainstorm various stories they have read and movies they have seen in the past; but your students don’t have to draw on prior knowledge. You can use the visual aids to focus on a particular book you are studying. It can be a class novel or your students’ independent reading books. You can use the organizers for guided reading, book clubs, and literature circles. You are only limited by your imagination.

Please feel free to ask any questions—I will definitely respond to all inquiries in a timely fashion. Please, check out my other products and resources:
