Tip: Character Clusters
How do I do it?
To support students in drawing upon and writing about details from a text, making character clusters before writing analyzing a text can help language learners to identify vocabulary that will be useful in describing characters as well as in comparing and contrasting characters.
Variations & Extensions
Each cluster can be cut out and moved around with other character clusters to compare and contrast details and as well as be used as a prewriting tool. Character clusters from previous units can be utilized for additional analysis.
