This product works great as an interactive notebook entry, but also as a booklet!
I use the acronym STEAL to teach characterization, and this graphic organizer pairs perfectly as a character log to practice the skill of inferring and characterization in R. J. Palacio’s book, Wonder. See my other product, the general Character Log product listing to use with any character development in any text.
Students investigate a text for examples or these 5 ways authors indirectly reveal the traits of their characters: Speech, Thoughts, Effect on others (Interactions), Actions, and Looks. This way, they are learning that characters develop in many different ways throughout an entire story. Students also learn to look for specific evidence in the book
to infer traits from.
Log entries include:
1. Passage from book
2. Page number
3. trait the passage is showing
Students could work in teams to complete the log throughout the book, or students could be the expert of a couple characters that they are responsible to share to the class.
After we finish the book, students choose 1 character to complete the character development page.
