This is a two-part worksheet that defines the key terms, shares examples of each, and affords students the opportunity to analyze brief passages. Part one focuses on traits vs. feelings. Using ten 1 to 2 sentence passages, students underline the adjective that describes a character, and determine if it is a trait or a feeling. In part two, students analyze seven short passages, match the passage to the character trait it reveals (from a word list), and determine if the trait is revealed through direct characterization, indirect characterization, or both. As an extension activity, students can review all of the examples identified as indirect characterization to determine the method of characterization used. This has been created in Word, so you can edit it as needed. An answer key is included.
