Purpose of Unit:

This unit was built to teach inferring character traits by having each lesson grow in complexity and rigor. It starts out defining what character traits are and ends with the students using writing to "show and not tell" the character traits. The tasks reveal whether the students really have an understanding of inferring character traits with the final task including art integration. The unit is built around the learning goal: - “I Can Define and Infer Character Traits”

• Enduring Understandings
