Understanding Character

Readers practice character analysis by reviewing Gary Soto's short story "La Bamba" with the whole class (anything you've read together will work). They design t-shirts that feature traits and story elements to reveal the nature of a character they choose. Links to worksheets, instructions, and a rubric. Prepare a t-shirt in advance to model what's expected.
