PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Students stuck in bad habits of writing? Still using phrases like "I think" and "this shows that...."? Use this to help refine their writing skills. This is a great little lesson for students to learn how to write a strong character analysis paragraph. Use this over and over for an in-class writing assignment, planning for a longer essay, or just basic instruction on analysis writing.

The lesson includes:

Planning Sheet: Students fill out the character's name, and traits they want to write about. They collect quotes and write their "rough draft" of commentary on a grid.

Outline: Students select their three strongest quotes and commentaries, and build the paragraph on a guided outline. Includes prompts & reminders to help focus their ideas.

Sample paragraph: Using the outline, I have supplied you with a very precise character analysis paragraph that students can read and study to ensure they are weaving in and citing quotes properly, providing strong commentary, and including a sufficient introduction and conclusion.

Rubric: A four-point scale rubric is provided covering everything from topic sentence, quotes, conclusion, and language, and a lot of stuff in between :)

I hope this helps your students learn how to precisely write about characters, and gain confidence in their paragraph writing.

It would be easy to use this multiple times for multiple stories or novels. Provide students with a few outlines if they are building an essay!

Thanks!
