Spice up an age old lesson on the methods of characterization by connecting it to concepts students understand: trolls (nasty people), throwing shade (insults), and clapbacks (comebacks). Students will be instantly connected to the methods of characterization: what characters say, how they act, what other characters say, and how they react.

This study is scaffolded to support student learning. The study begins with students analyzing the characterization of two "characters" in an image. Then, students apply their learning to the best break up poem, "Bound" by Aline Murray Kilmer. After analyzing the methods of characterization the poet uses to develop the narrator in a graphic organizer, students complete a short answer analysis. Last, students apply their learning to an excerpt from literature identifying how throwing shade and clapbacks helps to develop two characters' relationship. BONUS: a final activity is provided for optional application of student learning. Students look for the best trolls, shade, and clapbacks in any other text they are reading--this would be a perfect extension to students' independent reading.
