In Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen offers such nuanced, careful, and often hilarious characterization that teaching the novel is a great opportunity for teaching or reviewing different types of characterization.
Since each class is different, this resource offers teachers the opportunity to tailor instruction to student needs. For a class unfamiliar with different types of characterization, there is a notes page. The worksheet can be used in class or as homework., in pairs or alone.
While I designed this set for use with my Pride and Prejudice unit, the notes page and examples could work without the novel. Students do not need Austen-specific knowledge to complete either piece or to develop an understanding of direct and indirect characterization.
