CHARACTERIZATION: all of the elements that come together to create an imaginary person or character
This is a complete lesson about characterization. The definition of the term is followed by a discussion using excellent examples in prose. Activity sheets provide questions that promote and ensure understanding, and a writing exercise that provides an opportunity for application.
Includes a teacher guide that discusses literary terms, suggests a lesson cycle, provides NCTE/IRA standards, and includes an answer key.
Characterization is excerpted from THE LITERARY TERMS HANDBOOK.
