In the thumbnail, the illustration on the graphic organizer is showing up on the bottom of the page. It should be at the top. I have tried downloading the copy and it is appearing correct on my page. If it doesn' t show up correctly in your copy let me know and I will address the problem and get you a correct copy. Thank you!
Using picture books in the classroom allows students to “hear” an author’s voice emerging from the pages of a text. One of the best picture books to teach voice is Anthony Browne’s Voices in the Park. Browne cleverly tells the same story through four different characters. Even though the story is the same, each character has a different voice and point of view. The illustrations and language cleverly enhance each character.
This lesson uses a graphic organizer (comparison chart) to compare and contrast the four different voices in the text. Using the comparison chart, the students will have to support their character descriptions by the examples in the text and the illustrations. This makes students justify their answer choices.
This is in a lesson plan format and can be used for small groups as well as whole class instruction depending on the grade level and class.
I have also included a character trait list I use with my students.
