Lesson idea implementation:

For this lesson we will be working on understanding what a character is and how a character can develop.
This lesson will take about an hour and the students will be given a grade on the PowerPoint they create with
their group. I will introduce the lesson with the opening question, What is a character in a story and does a
character change throughout the story? I will give the students a chance to respond without acknowledging
whether their answers are accurate. It will be a time for students to throw out their ideas and all these ideas
will be viewed as relevant even if they are not correct. Next I will show the students the video on BrainPop

about Characters. After the video I will ask the opening question again and we will discuss what they have
learned about what a character is from the video.
Next I will put the students into groups of about 3-4 kids and I will let each group pick a short book. The
students will read the book together and then they will be expected to create a PowerPoint identifying the
main character in the book. They will need to address the characters qualities as well as how the character
developed throughout the story. To conclude the lesson, I will have each group present their PowerPoint to
the class. To take the lesson a step further, I would also add the students PowerPoints to our class blog so
that everyone else can enjoy their hard work!
