Diary of Anne Frank Lesson: Characterization / Analysis and Self-Reflection

Diary of Anne Frank Lesson: Characterization / Analysis and Self-Reflection

ANNE FRANK CHARACTERIZATION ACTIVITY This is a deeply engaging activity for your students to not only learn how to analyze/characterize literature, but learn how to reflect and grow as individuals through reading. What is included: 1) Powerpoint Presentation with definition and examples of Dynamic, Static, Round, and Flat Characters; Characterization (Indirect and Direct) 2) Student Guided Notes: Two options to correspond with the PowerPoint (fill-in notes or ready-to-use) 3) Character Brainstorming Sheets: Students will be given an acronym (T.R.A.I.T.S.) to help them remember what to consider when analyzing characters. Upon filling out the brainstorming work, there is an option for a paragraph or essay portion of Characterization (for one or all of the characters included). 4) Self-Reflection: I think one of the most important aspects of character analysis in literature is the opportunity for Self-Reflection. In characters, we often can see similar or very dissimilar traits within ourselves. This portion of the packet allows students to complete the same process of characterizing they did with the characters, but for themselves. With this, hopefully they are able to be given some insight as to why reading is so important.

Blooms questioning dartboard

Blooms questioning dartboard

A great resource to utilise questioning in class. Add your own questions to the PowerPoint which has been linked to the colour coded slides. The learners should throw an object of your choosing (I use a suction ball or a paper ball) at one of the six colours. This will move the PowerPoint onto a question at varying levels of difficultly depending on which part of the target they hit.. A simple but effective starter or plenary. Note: Two versions have been included. One where challenging questions appear more frequently and one where lower order questions appear more frequently.
