I was assessing my students in Reading in a colleague’s office today. As a student was finishing up a passage silently, I began looking at her walls. I found a great chart on character development. Loved it so much that I turned it into a “worksheet” of my own. (I also altered it a bit so to include further examples for some of the items listed.) Here it is:
I am a literacy consultant who has spent the past dozen years working with teachers to improve the teaching of writing in their classrooms. While I work with teachers and students in grades K-6, I'm a former fourth and fifth-grade teacher so I have a passion for working with upper elementary students.
I'm the author of Craft Moves (Stenhouse Publishers, 2016) and the co-author of Jump Into Writing (Zaner-Bloser, 2021), Welcome to Writing Workshop (Stenhouse Publishers, 2019), and Day By Day (Stenhouse, 2010).
