This graphic organizer is a MUST when you are reading novels in a classroom. It helps students remember the major and minor characters of a novels by recording them as they appear in the book. It also allows them to write a short description of who they are (who they are related to or what role did they play). SO many times during discussions in my classroom I have students who can't remember characters so we have to back up and review. My students keep this list out during our read aloud or when they are reading an assigned novel individually. When the novel is finished it becomes an incredible resource when the students are working on characterization or plot activities.
