Product Description
Students usually know what a character is, but do they know how an author develops one? These pages will help them put a magnifying glass onto any character of your/their choice from any text of your/their choosing!

Students will define what characterization means as defined by the teacher. They will then read about and list a few ways that authors develop their characters. Finally, they will choose a character to analyze, record an appropriate/fitting adjective, and find text support in the form of a quote that proves their chosen adjective. Some character development techniques include narration, dialogue, and actions. Beneath the quote, students will explain their citation by adding an explanation and/or story detail. See my facebook page, Reading Response Creations, for a video close-up on pages!!
