Of Mice and Men Character Analysis Graphic Organizers


Help your students analyze each character in John Steinbeck’s novel, “Of Mice and Men” with these character analysis graphic organizers. There are two different organizers for each of the main characters in the story, and both of the organizers require students to find and cite evidence as they read.

The first organizer asks students to identify if the character is round or flat, static or dynamic, an antagonist or a protagonist, and the character’s main conflict. After students identify these qualities, they also need to provide textual evidence and an explanation. This organizer also asks students to illustrate the character using details from the text.

The second organizer asks students to trace a character’s emotions and motivation from the beginning to the end of the novel. There is also a small space designated for students to illustrate the character’s emotions, wants, needs, or motivation.

Both of these organizers are differentiated for ESL students, and struggling readers. However, they can also be used in regular and honors classes.
