Characterization and Enemy Pie

With the help of a presentation, multiple readings, and the completion of a graphic organizer, scholars examine character traits to better understand the story, Enemy Pie by Derek Munson. After gathering evidence with a focus on one character, readers prove their comprehension by way a written paragraph, whole-class discussion, and an exit ticket.
