Inferring About Characters Based on How They Respond to Challenges (Chapter 4: "Los Higos/Figs")

This Inferring About Characters Based on How They Respond to Challenges (Chapter 4: "Los Higos/Figs") lesson plan also includes:

How do you know what a character's personality is like if an author doesn't tell you? With a focus on character development in Esperanza Rising, pupils complete a jigsaw activity to analyze the actions of Mama, Abuelita, and Miguel. Once group members have shared with their expert group and their own group of three, they compare and contrast the other characters to Esperanza. Class members must make inferences using author details and character behavior. During this well-sequenced lesson plan, learners will complete a quiz, participate in a jigsaw activity, create posters and charts, and write briefly for an exit ticket, and close with a discussion about human rights.
