This lesson introduces characterization through the use of a prezi.
Prezi is similar to a power point presentation, but better in so many ways. This prezi teaches students about characterization using video clips and visuals.
*66 slide prezi
*Worksheet that follows the prezi - 5 pages
*Ideas for implementing lesson.
*Possible extension (Homework)
I have used this lesson with my 8th grade students, mild/moderate sped., EL, and general education students. The prezi, video clips, and visuals make this more accessible for a variety of learners, hitting many modalities. My students had a lot fun with this and enjoyed the lesson. This presentation created great conversation and debate. I have 49 minute periods and used 2 periods for this lesson. This lesson would also be appropriate for 6th through 10th grade students.
I hope this helps your students as much as it has helped mine.
**This is a zip file, so you will need to know how to unzip. I have a free download on how to do this and tpt also provides instructions on how to unzip. If you are using a PC, getting the prezi downloaded may take several minutes, so please be patient. If you are on a mac it is almost instantaneous.
