Middle and High School students will complete this trio of activities when analyzing a story. Here, they will examine characters for round, flat, dynamic and static qualities, and for the impact of characters on the Plot/Conflict.
For "Background Check," students mesh the information that they gather on a character from their reading with their understanding of the jobs offered during the time period of the story, or for the criteria colleges require for admission. This career choice depends on the character's age.
The other two,"What's My Title?" and "Fishing for Answers," require students to choose various plot situations, and then to analyze the character's actions and reactions on his or her main objective in the story, on the other individuals involved in the situation, and on the conflict.
This tantalizing trio empowers students to add depth and understanding to their comprehension homes. Each of these English Language Arts lesson plans is aligned with Common Core Standards as well as Bloom's Taxonomy. This posting also contains detailed Teacher Notes.
