*The 4th and 5th grade TEKS specifically mention “Character Tags” and I contacted TEA about this term. They admit that it is an ambiguous term and that there is no specific way to teach it since it is not a term typically used for drama. They assured me that it could be taught as character names and/or characterization but that it really shouldn’t be called “character tags”. I’ve chosen to teach it both ways in these lessons.
