This chart goes along with the "To Kill a Mockingbird Character Development Project," but I believe that it can also be used in isolation, which is why I have listed it separately.
Using either Scout or Jem, students are able to use this chart to organize their assertions and evidence for the character's development. The chart asks students to determine two character traits for how the character was at the beginning of the novel. Then, students must find three events that force the character to develop or grow. Finally, students must determine two contrasting character traits for how the character had become by the end of the novel. Each character trait and changing event must be represented with a quote or passage from the novel.
I have students complete this chart as the first step of the "To Kill a Mockingbird Character Development Project." This will take between one and two class periods.
