Teaching students about character traits beyond the standard 'kind and mean' can be challenging, especially in the upper grades where not only are students expected to identify specific character traits, but also discuss how events in the story change the character, and how the character impacts the plot.  The good news is that providing them with scaffolds and a variety of examples can really impact their knowledge of character traits.
