Let's Run this One Through the Deflavorizer


analyze the personality traits, roles, relationships, motivations, attitudes and values of characters developed/persons presented in literature and other texts; and explain how the use of archetypes can contribute to the development of other textual elements, such as theme

Common Core:

Analyze the traits, motivations, and thoughts of individuals in fiction and nonfiction based on how they are described, what they say and do, and how they interact.

OK, I can see trimming off the archetypes bit, but still, we're getting stuck with the crappily-worded knock off. Or perhaps this was lying around as an example of how to paraphrase without getting busted for plagiarism and got stuck in as a standard by mistake.
