This is a PPT to teach Lucy Calkin's 4th Grade Reading Unit, Interpreting Characters: The Heart of the Story. It includes a learning target and provides guided and independent practice for Session 12. It includes the connection, teaching, active engagement, the link, the mid-workshop teaching point, and the share.
*You will need a handout of pages 2-3, 26-28, 31-33, and 65-66 of Tiger Rising for the active engagement. You probably don't need all of these, but they are the ones listed. I also plan to provide students a short passage of a "debatable issue" for those that will struggle with this lesson.
*This is a supplement to help with the instruction of the unit. It is necessary to have the curriculum to use these resources.*
