This is a compact graphic organizer that serves as a think sheet for students as they write a character traits essay. It has a circular map to help identify adjectives that describe the character they will be talking about and then a tree thought map that helps them use evidence to support their traits.
Can be used whole group or individually. Can be used for short stories and novels alike. Spans multiple grade levels and is a great brainstorming exercise to get the students ready to write about character traits.
