Character Types

As we read our novels, we've been learning about different types of characters. I want them to understand the importance of these details so they are able to understand how an author uses characterization to create a story. As we went through this page creation, I had them tell me which characters in our novels (The Wednesday Wars, The Outsiders, Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry) would fit the different character types. It was so exciting when they "got it!" :)

My "Character Types" Anchor Chart.

As they were ready for each description, I folded back the tab for them to copy what was underneath.
