This graphic organizer can be used with any text or novel. It meets Common Core State Standard RL.1 and RL.3. The organizer asks students to select an example of characterization (action, speech, emotion, etc.), cite textual evidence, determine the character's motivation for the action, etc. and lastly give a character trait based on the characterization. This is a demanding activity that ensures rigor. The graphic organizer can be used individually, with partners, or with groups. Thanks to kevinandamanda.com for the great fonts!
