Understanding “characterization” is a skill required of all of our students. Students can use the Character Chart as a handy and organized way to keep track of the characters in the novel Gathering Blue by Lois Lowry. Space is provided for students to describe the traits of each character. Students should use text evidence to write words and phrases that show both how the characters look and how they act. There is also a space for students to make inferences and write about why the character is significant or important to the story. The first few characters are already listed on the chart. Students can continue to add other characters as they “meet” them in the story. Simply print and copy the following pages back to back for students.
