The following resources are included in the download:

• A Character Motive/Motivation PowerPoint—A mini-lesson which includes an introduction to determining motive and a quick gradual release activity (I Do, We Do, You Do) for practice.
• PPT Notes--printout with teaching instructions for the PPT
• Guided Practice Worksheet--to accompany PPT (students can work along with the teacher and peers)
• Worksheet for Independent Practicewith answer key
• How to Determine Motive/Motivation Handout for students
• Note-taking organizer handout
