An oldie but a goodie

I was looking through old facebook pictures of my classroom (because it's half time and my Arizona Cardinals are winning, so why not?) and I stumbled upon this old anchor chart:

I need to find it! I know I laminted it, so I didn't throw it away.

It's great for constructed responses where students need to analyze a character's change over time.  I will rewrite it to include "based on the text" stems so students know to go back to the passage for that textual support.

Considering this anchor chart is a few years old (aka pre-Common Core), I'd say it still does a pretty decent job at guiding student responses.  Besides, it's like Dr. Maya Angelou said:

It's time to do better.
