aligns with CCSSR1
read closely then make logical inferences you support with evidence--a graphic organizer is a way to display evidence.

Character traits are not the destination of the analysis--analyzing character traits that are represented in actions and choices helps to figure out the theme (CCSSR2), especially when readers analyze the development of a character during a story (CCSSR3).
