This Powerpoint includes activators with funny pictures to introduce students to making inferences about characters. Then students will be give a tool to use when trying to understand a character- the STEAL Wheel. This includes looking at a characters speech, thoughts, effect on others, actions, and looks. Students can practice this with a short film also linked in the presentation.
I suggest converting this to a google slides so that the youtube videos can play within the presentation.
There is a worksheet and notes sheet that goes along with this as well: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Notes-and-Practice-with-STEAL-Characterization-3434816
