Product Description
These mentor texts will give students excellent examples of characterizations during a narrative writing unit. This lends itself to a gradual release of responsibility approach. You can model your initial observations about the first text: what you notice about how the author chooses to describe a character. Students can then work together or independently analyzing the rest. From there, they can take their observations back to their own writing and improve their own characterization.
