Interpreting the Story: Focus on Characterization

The inner drive, ambition, and obsession of the complex main character in Brennan Stasiewicz’s “Prophets,” are the focus of a post-reading discussion. Class members record words that reveal something about Jim Charlton’s personality. Using these clues, the class’s challenge is to determine why Charlton might be trying so hard to prove himself. Discussion questions and extensions are included with the plan. The story is readily available on the Internet.

I would truly be lost without Lesson Planet! Although I have been in the classroom for over 25 years, I am very challenged by the need to obtain English-language student materials here in Estonia where I am the International Teacher for an Estonian public school. These materials are excellent, and well suited to ELL/ESL students. Especially, I can find both primary materials AND more sophisticated lessons - Math here, for instance, is quite advanced and I use materials from upper grades in addition to elementary math materials. Thank Goodness for Lesson Planet!|
