Are your students being asked to complete a character study? Begin by using the anchor chart. The chart teaches students to THINK about story characters in a more critical and complex way.
Then distribute the student guide, requiring students to carefully analyze a character. ALL terms are defined within the materials allowing for greater student independence and success!
This guide is perfect for whole group instruction, small group instruction, or with student-selected "just right" text. This activity is aligned to the common core and easily allows for differentiation.
