PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This activity involves analyzing a character to determine multiple aspects of what is happening within a character. Students select a character either from an independent text that they've read or a shared text and use text evidence to determine the thoughts, hopes, feelings, strengths, weaknesses, and important words spoken.

I model for students how to complete this activity before I give them the chance to do it. I pick a character from a shared text that we’ve read recently, and we go through each aspect of the character together. I make sure to model using specific text evidence to support what I say about the character.

This is a great activity to have students do in class or even as a take-home project. Students get the chance to really analyze a character on more than just a surface level. I find that this works best for characters from longer text, but I have used Patricia Polacco books to model this character sketch as well.
