H.O.M Character Analyser
Choose a character that was in the chapters you have read for Literacy Circles this week and identify a ‘Habits of Mind’ they showed (or a habit that they were not showing). Describe how this character demonstrated this habit. You need to identify 3 examples of ‘Habits of Mind’ being used from the chapters you read. They can be from the same character or different characters. Present your work in a table set out like this:
HOM CHARACTER ANALYSER
|Character:||Habit shown:||How the habit was shown:|
|Emma Judge||Striving for accuracy||Emma set high standards for herself and kept looking for ways to improve how she used the cockroaches|
|Peter||Applying past knowledge to new situations||Peter used what he was able to do to the butterflies and then did the same thing to the cockroaches|
|Emma Judge||Taking responsible risks||Emma took a responsible risk and tried something new when she thought of the first plan to invade the Cadwalladers house with cockroaches|
In your Literacy Circles meeting session:
- Tell your group the ‘Habits of Mind’ you identified. Can your group identify which character displayed this habit?
- Read the description of how the habit was shown. Can they now identify which character it is?
- Reveal the character you were analysing
