Need a fun, creative, quick-to-use way for students to think about literary characters?
This utilizes multiple Bloom's Taxonomy levels
1. Students will REMEMBER what they read.
2. Students will UNDERSTAND complex characters.
3. Students will APPLY fictional events to a new scenario.
4. Students will ANALYZE characters' personality traits and motivations.
5. Students will EVALUATE why they responded how they did on certain questions.
6. Students will CREATE their own conjectures and interpretations of their reading.
You can assign different characters to different students or let them choose.
You will also get a page with over 20 discussion questions to use before this assignment (as scaffolding) or after (as closure).
An example of one of the questions: If one character used this hashtag, what kind of post would it have been on? What in the text makes you think that?
#tbt. (throwback Thursday – used when reminiscing about past event while posting an old photo)

Read and comprehend literature, including stories, dramas, and poems, in the grades __ text complexity band proficiently, with scaffolding as needed at the high end of the range.
