Analyze character traits iwith this Character Traits Rating Continuum Graphic Organizer. Use with any book. This character traits graphic organizer will have students doing some higher level thinking! Students analyze a character trait of a character as they read a book by placing specific examples or text evidence of that trait from the book on a continuum. For instance, they could rate Brian's survival skills in Hatchet, or Billy's maturity in Where the Red Fern Grows. As they find examples of the trait in the book, they write the page number, a description, and evaluate it. This can be done with a book the whole class is reading with teacher guidance, and then with their independent reading books as well. Supports common core! - HappyEdugator
