Infuse your lesson with excitement as your students create a character sculpture of a major character from your text. Your students will discover how the author "sculpts" the character with their word choice. Students cite textual evidence as they create a visual representation of the character. As a team, they will discuss what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text(RL 1). The author “sculpts” each character with his word choice. Each team of students will explore a complex character with multiple motivations, how they interact with other characters, and how they advance the plot (RL3). Students will collect textual evidence samples from different areas of the text, determine direct and indirect characterization, and add this text to a 3-dimensional sculpture of the character. Students will be prepared to discuss the cumulative impact of the author’s word choices on meaning and tone (RL4). The character sculpture gallery walk will allow each student to examine the text through a different artistic medium. They will document what was emphasized or absent in each character sculpture (RL7).
