Product Description
This is a characterization activity that can be used with any character from fiction or non-fiction.

I've created an acrostic that spells FRONTWARDS with a catch phrase, "A Clear Perspective."

--Flat or Round
--Reactions of other characters
--Opinions of other characters
--Narrator's descriptions
--Thoughts of the character
--Words of the character
--Actions of the character
--Reactions of other characters
--Dynamic or Static

There is a cover and then two letters with leading questions per page.

You can create your own directions:

Brainstorm, answer in complete sentences, or provide an illustrative quote.

At the end I direct students to use their discoveries to write an essay about the author's characterization techniques.

This is optional for you.

It's a fun way to direct students to complete a thorough investigation of characters.

Thank you for your consideration.
