Activity Overview


As students read, a storyboard can serve as a helpful character reference log. This log (also called a character map) allows students to recall relevant information about important characters. With character mapping, students will record this information, helping them follow along and catch the subtleties, which make reading more enjoyable!


Here is a completed example for the Duke:

Physical Appearance:

  • velvet eye patch and monocle
  • wears gloves
  • 6'4"
  • one leg is shorter than the other

Character Traits:

  • cold
  • aggressive
  • evil


Evidence:

  • "He was six feet four, and forty-six, and even colder than he thought he was."
  • "One eye wore a velvet patch; the other glittered through a monocle, which made half his body seem closer to you than the other half."
  • "The Duke limped because his legs were of different lengths."
