Product Description
Students get into the habit of evaluating and applying text based evidence in argument writing. While reading, students will build a case supporting or condemning a character's actions.

Use with any text, as a formative opportunity to practice gathering text evidence or as a final assessment.

Included:
*Students make a prediction about a character's dilemma and/or decision
*During reading: graphic organizer for tracking a character's thoughts/feelings, words, and actions
*Detective's Case File: Students collect "evidence" (quotes) that support their thesis
*Essay graphic organizer to guide students through an argument writing assignment
*Fun "mugshot" templates for characters



Character on Trial project can be used with any text and adjusted for your grade level. I suggest:
Lower grades: Encyclopedia Brown short stories, stories from 13 Suspicious Incidents by Lemony Snicket, "The Necklace", or any character analysis (Is ______ a sympathetic character?).

Upper grades: "The Lottery" by Shirley Jackson, "Harrison Bergeron" by Kurt Vonnegut, "Thank You Ma'am" by Langston Hughes, poems for literary analysis.

Whatever text you select, students will have a great opportunity to practice critical thinking skills and supporting their ideas with evidence.
