Reflection: Intervention and Extension Analyzing Character Development, Day Two - Section 2: Character Mapping


My students performed well today, showing me they were ready to move into the whole standard (considering how all elements relate). However, I had a back-up plan in place if that didn't happen.

Our focus has only been on the main characters up to this point. If students needed more practice with characterization, now would have been a good time to look at how the minor characters were developed, too. We could have broken off into groups to analyze a minor character across the whole story, if needed.
