We are currently using the character
traits from your book "The Next Steps in Guided Reading."" Any
knowledge of books that support these traits would be greatly
appreciated, or other resources.
I'm so glad to hear you are
teaching those character traits to your students. It is a great way to
build academic vocabulary and leads to richer discussions surrounding
character analysis. I recommend teachers use characters across the
curriculum to teach the traits. If you think about it, characters from
fairy tales, picture books, fables, history and current events will
exhibit traits from the list (both positive and negative). Therefore, I
don't recommend a specific set of books to teach the traits -- just use
what you have.
