This is an extended organizer created by Contextual Classroom to aid students in characterization using the STEAL method. The STEAL method asks students to analyze a character using evidence from the text based on a character's speech, thoughts, effect on others, actions, and looks.
There are additional questions under each characterization method to help students extend their thinking and develop a rounded portrait of a character.
This organizer is perfect for students working on a novel study, short story, drama, or film assignment. It is a helpful tool for students brainstorming and collecting textual evidence in order to prepare for a written response. Could also be used as a passage analysis tool.
