Teachers could demonstrate how to keep track of character traits by creating a chart like this one. When reading a book aloud, teachers could model how to come up with different characteristics, and they could also explain to students what to look for. They could come up with this list together, and then the students could create their own, mini charts when they are reading individually.

This teacher did a great character study on the BFG. I think that's an excellent choice for character study! I also like to stress the difference between character traits and actions, then connect the two. Awesome anchor chart from oneextradegree.blogspot.com
