characterization
Characterization

The people, animals or things in a story are the CHARACTERS.

Authors give you clues about what the characters are like.

slide7
Think about what the writer tells you about the characters in a story. It will help you understand the story better.
slide8
To identify character traits, think of the following things:
  • What does the character say and do?
  • How does the character think and feel?
  • How does the character look?
  • What do the other characters think about the character?
  • How does the character make you feel?

Tippy had a bone. A bigger dog wanted it. Tippy was afraid. She stood over her bone and barked. The big dog ran away. Tippy was glad she hadn’t lost her bone.

What words would you use to describe Tippy?

slide11
When describing a character, make sure to mention parts of the story that serve as proofs to your description of the character.
slide12
Remember to avoid vague descriptive words such as nice and okay. These words just lead to unclear message.
