Edtech 506 - Story Elements Character Analysis Worksheet

The Story Elements Character Analysis worksheet was created as part of a unit on Story Elements of a Fictional Narrative and a lesson on identifying character traits. I chose this artifact to represent AECT Standard 2.1 because it is a handout that can be printed as part of the lesson.

It was created using the message design principles of color and typography, using Contrast, Alignment, Repetition, and Proximity (CARP) (Lohr, 2008). In creating this worksheet, I gained a deeper understanding in the use of color theory outlined by Lohr (2008). I used green to enhance acuity and recognition of the smiley face as representing a character, and the split-complementary colors of reddish-purple and reddish-orange for contrast between clues and traits. In reflecting CARP, each of the boxes and text is aligned, and the rectangle shape reinforces repetition. Because this was designed for younger learners, I wanted to keep it very simple.
