Character Chart

Name: Taylor Berkshire


Date of Lesson: 2/10/17

LESSON TITLE: CHARACTER CHART SUBJECT AREA: Language Arts

GRADE LEVEL: 3rd


TIME ALLOCATION: 90 min

CENTRAL FOCUS: How does a character's traits and motivations contribute to the
plot of a story? How can understanding a character's personality help me to better
understand literary text? Characters play a pivotal role in the plot of a story as
they manipulate the events with their choices. Understanding a character's traits,
motivations, and feelings helps the reader to make connections between the
literary elements within a test, and those connections help aid comprehension.

RATIONALE FOR TEACHING: The hand on student engagement and chance for
creativity will encourage student participation. The teacher can then teach the
students the vital comprehension skills in the area of character identification and
story recollection.
