Comprehending Literary Text: Character Motivation

Two passages from The Diary of Anne Frank provide the text for a study of character motivation. After reading the first passage, class members discuss the characters' motivation. As a check for understanding, pupils read a second passage and identify the motivation of each character in the selection. For additional practice, pairs of students could craft dialogues and class members would identify the motivations of the speakers.

Lesson Planet is a wonderful resource. I can easily search for lesson ideas and love the great printables. Lesson Planet has cut down on my planning time because I can usually find tried and true lessons on any subject. Why reinvent the wheel?
