PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The following two-page handout or worksheet is an engaging pre-reading activity to help your students better understand the characterization of the siblings in Orson Scott Card's science fiction novel "Ender's Game." The worksheet presents some research on the typical characteristics of children in a family and asks students to see how many of these traits apply to them and their siblings. When students read the work, they will better understand and analyze who Ender, Peter, and Valentine are and the interplay among them, which is vital to understanding the indirect characterization of the novel. Students then are asked to analyze what characteristics are evident in other works with siblings that they've read so far. This activity spurs conversation and debate, and it's a great cross-curricular activity with psychology.
