Product Description
This characterization mini lesson (approximately 60 minutes with the activity) has everything you need to facilitate a common core lesson that builds background knowledge about the importance of characterization for young readers and writers.

This zip file includes a characterization reference sheet for students, a 13 page PowerPoint with examples from the book The Help By: Kathryn Stockett (a popular book and movie with which many students have prior knowledge), and a student activity that allows them to look at all of the different elements of characterization in a novel of their choosing. This is also a great way to differentiate.

From the reference sheet:
“There is much more to a character than just their physical appearance. The same is true for all people! When readers begin to connect with characters, they get involved in the plot. Furthermore, readers become invested in what will happen to the characters they love and despise. Authors can create more meaningful characters when they use books they read as models.”

Students will leave this mini lesson with a deeper understanding of characterization.
