Product Description
This lesson plan and accompanying 10 question worksheet teaches students about the use of characterization as exemplified through Carson McCuller's short story, Sucker. After students have read the story, the teacher will review characterization and discuss the most common means an author uses to help readers understand their characters (these are outlined in the lesson plan, as well). You may wish to site examples from other stories to exemplify each of these techniques. Then students can then either complete the worksheet independently or in groups, citing specific passages or lines in the story to support their conclusions about both Pete and Sucker. Students will then share out their responses and compare with their classmates. As an added bonus, this worksheet can easily be modified and used for any lesson in which you wish to review characterization.
