This 6 page activity can be used both for producing an essay outline and for understanding character development in a text. It includes all directions for you and your students, and all the necessary forms and visual examples. It should take roughly 45 minutes to an hour, and can be broken up into more than one day depending on your schedule. It can also be used to satisfy certain writing standards. The complexity of the writing can be adjusted for your grade level, but the procedure is the same no matter what. Designed for 5th grade on up. Thanks for checking out my store!
