Product Description
This graphic organizer and its questions may be used with any text whether it be a short story, a narrative poem, or a novel. The questions are designed so any character the student wishes to discuss can be used. Once students have completed their Character Wheels, I have them participate in a Socratic Discussion about one specific character. The wheel becomes the prep work and pre-thinking for the Socratic. This graphic organizer would also work well as a quiz or reading check.

This product includes:
• A blank character wheel graphic organizer for use with any short story, novel chapter, narrative poem, or key passage

Lesson time length: 90 minutes

Key Words:

Graphic Organizer, short story, key passage, novel reading guide, close reading, preparation for a Socratic Seminar, characters, archetypes, satire, sarcasm, irony, diction, dialogue, syntax, literary devices, inferenceing, text-to-text connections, theme, universal truth, narrative poem, poetry
