Character Analysis Essay Graphic Organizer

(1)
Character Analysis Essay Graphic Organizer I created this product to use while writing character analysis essays in my 5th grade classroom. It could easily be used with younger students as well with additional teaching and support. This graphic organizer is to be used after students read a story and match character traits to the main events in a story. They will need explicit instruction in identifying character traits before completing this organizer. After learning about character traits, students can use this organizer to identify different character traits present in one character throughout a story. This organizer can then be used to model ways to turn their ideas into paragraphs, resulting in a complete character analysis essay. *********************************************************************** Copyright © 2015 Keep Calm and Teach 5th Grade All rights reserved by the author.

Fictional Story Map Graphic Organizer

Fictional Story Map Graphic Organizer This fictional story map can be used to support students in retelling any story. For younger students, you can work with a basic retell to prepare students to writing a summary. For older students, I use the top half of the box to tell what happened and the lower half to analyze characteristics of the characters during certain events. The graphic organizer follows the "Somebody, Wanted, But, So" structure, lending itself to be used with the plot of many books. I use this resource with my character analysis essays after reading a picture book where the main character changes throughout the story. *********************************************************************** Copyright © 2015 Keep Calm and Teach 5th Grade All rights reserved by the author.
