Product Description
When reading literature, it is essential for students to investigate characterization. When they begin to understand the author’s process for developing characters, they are able to visualize characters and dive deeper into the text. This engaging 3-day Characterization Mini-Unit is designed to help students understand how authors create characters and how students can use clues from the text to better comprehend a character within the context of the story.

This characterization mini-unit provides numerous opportunities to develop the skill of understanding characters. Each lesson starts with a fun and engaging activity – Character Sketch, Character Snapshots, and a Character Improvisation game. Then, students learn about characterization through whole group instruction, small group work, partnerships, and independent practice.

In this mini-unit, students will develop a deep understanding of literary devices, characterization, methods of characterization (5), types of characterization (direct and indirect), and how to identify characterization in a passage. Students will complete guided notes, reading comprehension passages, graphic organizers and character analysis with mini-passages. This is a fun unit for students and teachers!

This detailed CHARACTERIZATION mini-unit includes:
• 3 Detailed Daily Lesson Plans
• Character Sketch Brainstorm
• Character Sketch Writing Activity
• Character Snapshots
• Character Descriptions
• Need a Ride? Improvisational Game Directions
