Using this Common Core aligned S.T.E.A.L. graphic organizer, students are asked to note take on indirect characterization as they come across it in their reading. This chart is an easy way for students to organize their thoughts while supporting their inferences with valid, well cited textual evidence. The corresponding images also help with differentiation to meet student learning needs. My middle school students love using the S.T.E.A.L. chart because it's accessible and easy to use!
