This activity provides a fun way to assess the characters in the movie Mean Girls. I start off with a recap of what characterization is and the differences between direct and indirect. I do this using the Frozen video clip that is linked in the document. Next, I use a clip from the movie that has been modified for use in the classroom (a curse word is edited out completely). This is also linked in the document. One could also show other clips from the DVD as there are a plethora of examples of indirect/direct characterization in the film.
