Add some text-based fun to ANY novel, play, or short story with this easy-to-use worksheet where students choose a character and focus on evidence from the text as they examine the technique of direct and indirect characterization.
This 2-page file (both printable PDF and Google Drive versions) includes a blank form and a completed sample to show students, if you wish. The sample is from the first chapter of The Hunger Games, showing how author Suzanne Collins plants direct and indirect characterization elements to help the reader get to know Katniss Everdeen, but you could use this worksheet with ANY book, short story, or play.
Hope you enjoy this characterization activity, which works with sixth graders through high school seniors.
