The plot of "The Perks of Being A Wallflower" can be challenging for students to follow. "When did this happen to Charlie?" "What page was this event on?" The questions from students would never end.
I created this plot tracking tool so my students could independently track the plot throughout the text. It also served as a great comprehension tool, as many of them now recall details from the text. It kept my students accountable to reading the assigned pages and actually know what's going on. For each letter, students found the appropriate square and wrote a 2-3 sentence summary of that letter. Some summaries were longer, others were quite short.
This worked wonders for my students, and I hope it helps yours as well.
