I created this characters' relationship web because I wanted something simple for my middle school students to use right after a Reader's Workshop mini lesson. It was important to me that my students not only write the names of other characters in the book but to identify the secondary characters and how they each relate to the main character. I also created a space for students to write a brief description about the main character. During reader's workshop I expect my students to always be making connections, inferring, and synthesizing details as they read their novels. I hope this freebie is as helpful to you as it has been to me!
