Characters change their feelings in response to events. Readers notice feeling changes and think about what caused them.

Lesson Plan

Lesson 13

Standards:

  • Determine character motivation and feelings from thoughts, dialogue, actions, and punctuation.  Trace how and why characters’ feelings change over the course of a text and how that helps establish a theme.
  • Determine the purpose of individual sentences and paragraphs and their role in the text. 
  • Identify supporting evidence and provide elaboration for inferences.

 

Big Idea: People are influenced by and react to their setting so you need to consider the setting carefully. Readers of historical fiction can use what they know about a setting to understand character actions, feelings, motivations, and traits to make predictions.

 

Teaching Point: Characters change their feelings in response to events. Readers notice feeling changes and think about what caused them.

Reading Workshop Lesson:

  •  Readers, yesterday we noticed how Bud’s feelings changed throughout chapter 14. Today, we are going to do the same thing with chapter 15. As we notice Bud’s feelings change, we are going to figure out what is causing those feelings to change.  
  • [Stop at the end of page 175.] How does Bud feel at the beginning of the chapter? [Embarrassed.] What is causing him to feel this way? [Crying in front of everyone at the Sweet Pea.]
  • For the rest of this chapter, I want you to raise your hand when you notice Bud’s feelings change. You should be ready to explain how to know that Bud’s feelings are changing. [Continue reading and stop to discuss his feelings changing to nervous in the middle of the chapter and then to calm and happy at the end of the chapter. For each feeling change, discuss what causes his feelings to change.]
  • Readers, in all of your reading, when you notice a character’s feelings change, you should think about what important or unusual event may have caused the feeling change.
