Students must that learn stories are less about what happens and more about the characters things happen to. They need to be encouraged to look beyond the words on the page and to make inferences based upon clues about a character’s personality through his or her words, actions, reactions, feelings, movements, thoughts, and mannerisms. This resource is a fun way to help improve our students’ critical reading abilities and understanding of literature. Also it will give them a deeper understanding of a book’s characters. Book Character Detective worksheets and activities are included for character analysis.
