Is your child at a loss when tasked to conduct an analysis on a character in a literary text as part of the GEP syllabus?
At Joyous Learning, we teach our students to dissect characters in a systematic manner using the AADT (Actions-Appearance-Dialogue-Thoughts) framework.
Here's an overview of how to use the framework to analyse characters.
Now, time for some practice!
Get your child to analyse the characters in the text below and discuss his or her opinions using the AADT framework.
The teacher with the gentle face knelt next to the crying boy and put a hand on his shoulder.
“It is okay to be upset. These things happen. Whatever happens, you must remember that is not your fault,” the teacher said in a comforting tone.
The teacher dabbed away the boy’s tears with a piece of tissue paper, then held him in a tight embrace. She could feel the boy’s body heave with each sob, and it pained her to see him so upset.
