Learning methods of characterization is definitely a great way for kids to develop their inference skills, as well as their narrative writing abilities. Using the Teach, Practice, Test method is the best way to ensure mastery of these important skills. Step-by-step directions show you how to begin by using the PowerPoint and guided notes for instructing and modeling. Students will move on to collaborative and independent practice worksheets. Then you can assess with the editable test.

UPDATE (4/2020): I've added a digital file to reduce your remote teaching prep work by providing Google Drive versions of every part of the unit, including the editable test.
