What is a Character Map?

A character map is a useful graphic organizer used to keep track of characters in a story. Character maps may be simple with name and description, or may be more complex with character traits, physical description, analytical questions, changes over time, and more.

Why are they important and how are they best used?

Most pieces of literature have characters that drive the plot. Identifying and analyzing character traits or how the character changes over time is important to understanding the theme or the work as a whole. Character maps are great for both younger students and older, more advanced students before, during, and after reading. A character map is also beneficial to use when planning for creative writing.
