This PowerPoint is meant to be used as an introduction to studying character traits. It defines character traits, gives examples, ways to identify character traits, and how to explain or prove a person's character trait(s) using evidence. It is aligned to CCSS for several grade levels. The last two slides include an outlined note taking guide with blanks for students to fill in based on the information in the powerpoint. The answers to the note taking guide are not visible but do appear when students or the teacher click on the slide. A paper copy of the note taking guide is available for free at my store.
