This strategy helps students analyze and evaluate characters in a text by rating them on a variety of dimensions along a three-, five-, or seven-point continuum. After reading, students place a check mark on one of the blanks along the continuum to indicate their understanding and interpretation of a character based on a particular dimension. They can include examples from the text as justification and discuss them in a literature circle. This strategy can be used with the linear arrays strategy.
