There are quite a few characters in Paul Fleischman's Seedfolks, so why not help your class keep track of them? Learners can mark up this chart to show the traits that apply to each character. Along the left, each character is listed, and traits are written along the top. Pupils write a plus sign if the descriptor fits a particular character, and a minus sign if it does not. This would work well as a preparatory piece for a more in-depth assignment on characterization.
- The chart will help class members keep the characters straight and take note of their characteristics in an organized manner
- The task involved is not very complex and is useful mostly as a way to prepare students for discussions or writing assignments
