Product Description
The intention of this unit of study is to look closely at the characters in a fiction story. By studying a character’s actions, inner thoughts, behaviors, physical identity and how others react to a character, we can dig deeper into the meaning of the story. We can also see how a character changes over time. By studying character, students can work to deepen their comprehension of a story.

Information for teachers who have previously purchased the unit of study for Monitoring Comprehension from my Literacy Treasures TPT store:

This unit of study contains a lesson entitled “How Stories Tend To Go” which was included in the Monitoring Comprehension unit of study and focused on using the story mountain to retell a story’s events. However, the lesson in this unit will seem very similar, but will focus on tracking the character throughout a story. It can stand alone by itself or be used for building upon, which is what the tracking character emphasis will do in this lesson.

Key Teaching Points:
• Getting to know characters before reading (book jacket, blurb, etc.)
• Revisiting how stories tend to go with emphasis on character
• Character traits and emotions/feelings
• Noticing Characters (actions, dialogue, author stated feelings & traits, physical appearance, interactions with others)
• FLAT characters vs ROUND characters
• Noticing character traits to determine theories about character
• Character changes over time: Dynamic vs. Static characters
• How characters confront obstacles
• Building and writing character profiles (Parts 1 & 2)

Any feedback about this unit of study will be greatly appreciated.
