Runde's Room: We've Got Our Heads Stuck in a Good Book

I have found the art and science of teaching to be taken over more by standardized testing and textbook companies. What these people in charge don't understand is that listing standards and checking off boxes is not the best way to educate our students long-term. Because of the dis-connectivity between and among standards in the way they are presented in our textbooks, I felt the need to fill in those gaps for my students.

This Character Note-taking Sheet is great for having kids match different character traits with characters in stories. The sheet also has a spot for marking down first impressions of the character, how the character has changed over time, how they faced the book's problem and a spot to draw their visualization of the character.
