Students can also use this graphic organizer in the brainstorming stage of the writing process when developing a fictional piece.
Teachers can use this as a quick reading assessment as well.
The focus of this graphic organizer has been duplicated by numerous literacy experts. I have just created a ready-to-use handout for teachers to use for free.
