Teach direct and indirect characterization with this engaging lesson and activity bundle designed for middle (advanced) and high school students. This lesson uses the "STEAL" acronym to help students remember the five unique methods of indirect characterization.
Students will discover the strategies authors use to develop characters when writing short stories. This bundle will successfully move to students to a point where they can begin analyzing how complex characters are developed and, in turn, used to develop other literary elements found in literature!
