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. When reading a novel, small attributes and details frequently become important as the plot progresses. With character mapping, students will record this information, helping them follow along and catch the subtleties which make reading more enjoyable!

For To Kill a Mockingbird, a character map helps students remember the characters, and their interactions with Scout, Jem and Atticus. Many of the characters in the novel are dynamic, changing over the course of the book.

Copying this assignment will add both the example above and a blank template to your account for you to customize as desired. It can be helpful to edit it with specific questions about characters you want your students to answer. Tailoring this map with a guided note style helps students with recall and comprehension.
