This article was an excellent lead in to the skill.  The students were able to list and explain many character traits about this young girl  They were very engaged in the story-it connected well to their experiences and they had a lot to share.  It was a positive, inspiring way to start the lesson.  It is was a powerful piece not only because it applied to the concept, but also because of how it affected the atmosphere and environment of the classroom!
