A SWBST graphic organizer is helpful for students to use as a way to identify and keep track of important parts of a book. Standing for "Somebody Wanted, But, So Then", the graphic organizer allows students to visually work their way through the consequences of a character's actions and decisions.
In this particular exercise, students choose a character and introduce them in the first Somebody cell. Annemarie
In the second cell, the Wanted, the student depicts a goal of their character. Annemarie just wants her friends to be safe from the Nazis
The center But cell shows a conflict, something that might keep the desired thing from happening. The Nazis check to see who is Jewish and who is not.
In the fourth So cell, students will show what the character did to help solve the problem. Annemarie’s family worked together to sneak the Rosens out of the country and out of danger.
In the final cell Then, student should show the final outcome. The Rosen family safe in Sweden.
