Students can use this chart to track their thinking and understanding of characters throughout the book, Seedfolks by Paul Fleischman. As each new character is introduced, or referenced, students can add on to the chart. This really helped ELL students to better understand the text, and pushed GT students to think about the impact of each character. Students can complete this chart in its entirety, or depending on ability, it can be shortened or done in parts. When teaching this novel, we also created a giant wall version that we added to with pictures of the characters and pictures of the vegetables from the garden to better support the ELL students and those who didn't have much gardening or vegetable knowledge.
