PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The materials in this file consist of three scaffolded lessons to teach students how to analyze characterization in a text. See below for the breakdown of each lesson.

Lesson One:
The first lesson consists of three activities in which students discover the many ways to describe a character and how to differentiate character traits from other types of descriptions such as physical traits or moods.

Lesson Two:
The second lesson also consists of three activities. Here, the students learn how to examine evidence in order to characterize an individual. Students practice the skill through both short paragraphs and a two page original story.

Lesson Three:
The third lesson consists of two response to literature activities that guide students to apply their knowledge of characterization in written form. In the first activity, students examine exemplars of response to literature writing. In the second activity, students write their own response to literature paragraph. The second activity requires students to read a text in your curriculum. The activity will work with any fiction text with strong character development.

The lesson includes a variety of activities to keep students engaged. I have listed a few of the activity types below.
~ A video clip
~ Discussions
~ Sorting
~ Choosing Character Traits for Family Members
~ Examining Models
~ Response to Literature Writing

The file includes possible answers to discussion questions, answer keys, and a rubric for the final assessment.
