Statement of Inquiry

Charlotte DoyleStatement of Inquiry:

Students will understand that a character can be shaped by internal and external events through an inquiry into identity and relationships.

Inquiry Questions:


  • What strategies do authors use to communicate character traits?


  • How is the character's identity shaped by the events and themes?
  • How are we positioned to view characters and their situations?


  • Why do we have different emotional responses to characters?
  • What forms of characterization are effective?
  • Can insignificant events have a changing impact on the character's identity?

Approaches to Learning:

  • Create original works and ideas; use existing works and ideas in new ways   Thinking - Creative thinking
  • Collect, record and verify data   Research - Information literacy
