Explore complex characters and respond using text evidence. Perfect companion for a class read aloud or independent study. This type of response is a favorite in my class because it is engaging, thought provoking, and really, really FUN! It asks students to analyze multiple perspectives of the same event. Students can analyze different characters in one story or multiple pieces of text about the same event. Students are asked to analyze the point of view and how it influences the account of the event.
Students have the opportunity to create a colorful cover that is divided down the middle. Each side represents a different character. Inside is a full page response sheet. Each side is devoted to the perspective of one character or piece of text. The middle section is a place for summaries, factual information, and identification of the problem/solution.
Character Traits - Students identify specific character traits and provide textual evidence supporting their choices on a mini poster that can be displayed around the classroom.
