This file includes a comparing character and setting analysis graphic organizer for the major characters in "Washed Up!" The chart allows students to analyze how the different characters of this text are reacting to the setting in different ways. Students are then asked to identify the different family members from the text, and then to identify the specific language the author uses to describe the setting. To develop this work further students are given an opportunity to prove their analysis by writing text dependent questions based on the graphic organizer they completed.
"Washed Up!" is a mentor text in Unit 1 Module B for the 5th Grade Ready Gen program. This graphic organizer is aligned to Lesson 2 presented by the Ready Gen program.
