These charts are designed to be used with any story, Bible story, news story, event, observation, or historical event.
Create a collection or file of these to compare and contrast character traits of different people in different sitrations, times, places, and motivations.
Enlarge this file at a local printing company/education agency or via a SmartBoard, Elmo, or other projection devices to use as an anchor chart.
Use this chart as a pretest and/or posttest for a specific story, current event, observation, or historical event.
Include this sheet in a student's interactive notebook or subject area portfolio.
One way to differentiate this chart is to allow students to choose how they will complete each of the boxes. Some students might choose to write in the boxes, some students might choose to cut out pictures to glue in the boxes, some students might choose to illustrate the boxes, and some students might choose to do a combination thereof.
Stations could be created in which each station features a different story with coordinating reference materials. Students/groups move from station to station completing a chart for each chosen story.
Each student could be assigned this chart and allowed to research the story of his/her choosing. Discussions and further research could ensue about similarities, differences, outcomes, blessings, and difficulties of each story and character trait.
If more differentiation is needed, allow/assign students to complete only certain boxes based on need, preference, skill, strengths, and interests.
Assign different parts of the chart to different students and allow students to share information to encourage the building of relationships and communication skills.
This chart may also be useful in teaching and discussing student behavior and social skills after a situation, such as bullying, occurs in the classroom, playground, or public setting.
The different sheets in the product are distinguished by a space to write the book/story title, event/observation, historical event, and Bible story.
