Story elements/character traits..


Junior Member
What strategy do you think story elements and character traits fall under? This is my next step, but I'm not sure what comprehension strategy they fall under.


Senior Member
I believe they are woven into all of the strategies.
Making Connections: relating to a character-you connect because he/she feels like you have felt. Or, text to text, when a character is like another you have met
Questioning: Why does a character act the way he does? What is the problem/solution? Why did the author choose a specific name?

Visualizing: Visualizing the character by using the author's description.

Inferring: Inferring how characters feel by their actions; Inferring problem/solution/setting.

Other reading skills

compare and contrast setting, plot, or characters

prediction of plot or charactions actions based on previous actions and character traits.

cause and effect- because these happened in the plot this is what happened next, and so on

I also did lessons on author's message which went into themes which led us now into Main idea and author's intent.

Good luck.
