Short Story analysis is an important Language Arts skill.
One of ways for students to get the most out of the short stories and novels they read is to make them aware of the techniques that writers use.
Authors reveal the physical descriptions and the personality traits of the characters they create by using either direct or indirect characterization.
In this four page lesson, Charlene Tess explains the three ways that authors reveal characters and gives examples of each of them.
Then, students will practice reading passages and deciding which of the three ways the authors used, and will practice writing short original passages to illustrate each of the techniques.
After doing this exercise, students will be aware of this important writing technique, and in the future, the students should be able to point out the method used by the authors in stories and novels that they read.
