Reflection: Intervention and Extension Mapping out our Characters and their Quest - Section 1: Lesson Opener


Alternative graphic organizers I have used in the past for character and setting work:

  • A two column chart-Person, Animal, Place or Object/What if? (to help students think of an overall plot)
  • A three column chart-Type of Magic/Who Does it/How it Works (to help students think of the magic and characters in their story)
  • A more extensive character map with the character in the middle and thought bubbles around with; "What my character says," "Feelings of my character," "Actions," and "Flaws."
  • A character history write long to dive deep into why the hero or villain is the way they are.
