Making the Posters
Students will need colored pencils, markers and copy paper to complete this activity.
Step 1 -- Each student needs to select a character. If the class is small, each student can choose one character. If the class is large, just make sure that every character is chosen, even family pets/animals.
Step 2 -- Ask the students to find a quote from the novel that shows the character's personality. The quote needs to be copied exactly and the page number should be noted.
Step 3 -- Tell the students to put the character's name in large letters on the top of the copy paper.
Step 4 -- Direct the students to draw the character from description in the novel. Underneath the picture, the student needs to write the quote neatly.
Assess this activity using a rubric. Criteria for the rubric can be choice of quote, neatness, use of color, and creativity. Students should share their character identity posters with the class when they are complete.
