This graphic organizer handout is great for the end of the first half of the novel "Touching Spirit Bear" by Ben Miaelsen.
It gives a quick look at the characters of Cole, Garvey, and Edwin (3 personality traits for each and the connection to Cole)
It also includes 12 balloons to be filled with plot events. The novel uses flashbacks extensively and can be confusing to some students. Having them organize the events chronologically helps them keep it all straight in their minds.(so they don't lose the plot so to speak!)
