Teaching a novel or play with several characters that are often confusing for students? Tired of using worksheets that don't seem to help students understand character relationships?
Try using this Interactive Character Map! Originally designed for Romeo and Juliet, this strategy can be adapted to be used for any story (just alter the character names on the map itself). My students benefit from the visual of the map in addition to the mini activities to get them up and moving in the classroom to help build their understanding of the story.
This resource includes the instructions to use the Interactive Character Map, tips for using the map, a list of 12 additional activities to use the map and the character map (made for Romeo and Juliet).
