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 story, 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!

By clicking "Use This Assignment", both the example above and a blank template will copy into your account. Feel free to customize both of them as desired. You may want students to start from scratch, or provide them with different questions to answer!
