This activity will allow students to develop an understanding of characters in a more comprehensive manner. When students know which characters are important to the plot and climax in a story it helps to build the readers understanding of the text. This also allows students to make real world connections and relate to the characters in a book much like they would in a movie. Mental images can be used by the reader to comprehend character(S) thoughts, moods, intentions, and feelings.
