Product Description
Whether for a creative writing class, literary unit, or a beginning-of-the-year self-introduction piece, this character sketch activity is a fun way to introduce or review methods of characterization and third-person point of view.

The student handouts include a definition of characterization, the four main methods of characterization:
(1) narrator’s/author’s descriptions of the character, including
physical descriptions
(2) what the character does and how the character acts
(3) what the character thinks and says
(4) what others say about the character,
a four-box graphic organizer to brainstorm about himself/herself using the four methods, and the prompt for writing.

The prompt includes directions for setting the context for the scene, writing in third-person point of view, incorporating at least three of the methods of characterization, and a main writing goal that his/her audience be able to describe him/her and infer the kind of person the writer is trying to reveal through the methods of characterization.

Perfect for the beginning of the year!
