Product Description
This resource asks students to take on the identity of one character whom they follow throughout the entirety of the book. Students take on the role of a character who is not the narrator and are asked to journal from that character's point of view, taking on the voice and perspective of that character. This challenges students to delve into the thoughts, actions, and motivations of these characters, which requires critical thinking.

As students read, they also collect important quotes that detail significant facts about the character they are tracking. When students find such a quote, they record it and explain the significance.

After completing the reading, students create a presentation that asks them to make connections between the book and the real world while also drawing some final conclusions about the text itself.

The resource also includes rubrics to use for the journaling/quotes and the presentation.

This resource will create a classroom atmosphere that challenges students while also allowing them to create and take ownership of their learning.
