This quick lesson introduces students to indirect characterization using the acronym STEAL (Speech, Thoughts, Effect on Others, Actions, and Looks). The student exemplar uses the first three paragraphs of the story “Raymond’s Run”, but you can replace this with the text of your choice. This resource also provides two lesson options for differentiation, depending on if you want to end your lesson with creative writing or a deeper analysis. Part of my Short Stories Unit for Interactive Notebooks.
