Direct & Indirect Characterization PDF & Google Drive, Use with ANY work of lit.

Add some text-based fun to ANY novel, play, or short story with this easy-to-use worksheet where students choose a character and focus on evidence from the text as they examine the technique of direct and indirect characterization.

This 2-page file (both printable PDF and Google Drive versions) includes a blank form and a completed sample to show students, if you wish. The sample is from the first chapter of The Hunger Games, showing how author Suzanne Collins plants direct and indirect characterization elements to help the reader get to know Katniss Everdeen, but you could use this worksheet with ANY book, short story, or play.

Please note: This worksheet activity is also included in my materials for the short story, “The Most Dangerous Game” and my Literature Supplemental Activity 10-pack. To avoid a duplicate purchase, do not buy the item on this page if you also intend to buy either of those other items.

Hope you enjoy this characterization activity, which works with sixth graders through high school seniors.
