Actions of a Character


The actions of a character also help us infer character traits. For example if the character is crying we can infer the character is feeling sad.

Watch the following movie about characters in a story.

You and your partner may pick any book you like. You are going to be looking for example of what a character does that tells you a character trait about them. You will write down the action and what you inferred on the Inferring Character Traits from a Character's Actions page. You will get the page from your teacher. You will both need to turn in a page but you may work together to complete the assignment. Look at the short example below if you need help.
