This graphic organizer asks students to make inferences about characters in a text they are reading. The organizer should be used while modeling inferences or after students learn what an inference is. The organizer asks students to select a character, give evidence from the text about the charater, list what they already know (about the character, about what it means when someone behaves in such a way, etc.) and then make an inference based on the evidence and what they know.
This organizer can be used in an elementary classroom or in a middle school classroom. This organizer allows for differentiation.
You can use during whole group or small group instruction, partner work, literature circles, or cooperative learning.
TWO VERSIONS OF THE SAME ORGANIZER ARE INCLUDED. One version has Wizard of Oz clipart and one does not so it can be used with students of all ages.
Pair this with a writing prompt of your choice to adapt to your students needs.
