Tuesday, October 11th

Today, we discussed characterization, which is how authors build great characters. More specifically, you learned about direct and indirect characterization.


For more information about both types of characterization, see the presentation you viewed in class below.

Direct and Indirect Characterization

We read Sandra Cisneros’s short story, Eleven, as a whole-class and made note of examples of direct and indirect characterization. You imported the fourth, fifth, and sixth grade level character traits into Notability to use as a resource for the activity above and for an Outsiders character analysis on Thursday.
