Product Description
Looking for your students to think about character motivation?

What kind of direct and indirect characterization examples can students find? Which character is the protagonist or antagonist? What kind of flat or round character traits do they display that affects their involvement in their setting and plot line? Included in this 3 page document are questions to use when reading any short fiction or novel, including handouts that can be done in groups or alone.

The eight character questions are then put into an essay assignment for students to practice their mastery over the character traits. Also included are two example essays from Langston Hughes' "Thank You, M'am" for your use, one on flat and round characters and one on the protagonist, Roger.
