Product Description
This activity covers indirect characterization in the short story, "The Scarlet Ibis," by James Hurst. The story is in most ninth grade literature books. There is a chart where students can list the five methods of indirect characterization (STAAR - Speech, Thoughts, Actions, Appearance, and the Reactions of Others) for a character in the story such as Doodle or the narrator. Also included is another chart for analyzing the symbolism in the short story as well.

Directions for this activity: Choose one symbol from the story. In the “Symbol-Literal” column, discuss the literal meaning of the symbol in the work. In other words, in what way does the symbol appear in the story? In the “Symbolism-Abstract” column, explain what the symbol represents in the larger context of life. In the “Effect/Insight” column, explain the effect of the symbol.
