During those 2 weeks, the students will go over what a character is, a setting is, and what character conflict looks like. Once they have finished the 2 week period, the students will be asked to pick out the setting, characters, and character conflict in the story and write about it. They are required to put sticky notes in the sections of the book that they find the requirements in and write what it is (ex. The setting is.).

I will start the class by finishing up reading the book Number the Stars for 10 minutes while the students surround me on the carpet. In between interesting parts, I will remind the students to be listening for the setting, characters, and any conflicts that they have between each other. I will ask the class to move back to their desks from the carpet, and take out their reading journals that they have been writing about for the past 2 week when they had been learning about setting, character, and character conflict. I will instruct the class to go back to their personal copies of the book and to make sticky notes in the last section of the book that we just read and mark the characters, settings, and conflicts. I will then instruct them to pick two characters from the book and compare and contrast them in a vin diagram.
