As a table, answer the following questions...
What are the 4 techniques an author uses to create character?
In 140 characters or less, "tweet" your answer to "What is characterization?" Then, add a relevant hashtag "#".
On a piece of paper, brainstorm your answers to this question: How do you know what someone is like?
(What do you look for, listen to, think about when your are trying to figure this out?)
GIVE 2, GET 2:
You have 2 minutes to
give 2
of your answers to and
get 2
new answers from your classmates to add to your brainstorm and return to your seat.
1. In your I.N. on the next blank page, draw a Frayer Map.

2. In the middle, write the word, characterization.
Think about the story, How Leo Learned to Be King.

What did you see or hear about the character Leo during the play?

Which technique of characterization is this?

What conclusions can we draw from these clues?

Point of View: the "voice" that tells the story.
Point of view from which a novel is written.
Character's point of view.
Learning Target:

I can analyze how an author develops the points of view of different characters or narrators.
Define Characterization.

What is essential to this definition?
Born Susan Eloise Hinton, July 22, 1948, in Tulsa, OK
Hinton wanted to be a cowboy or a writer.
She wrote The Outsiders in her Creative Writing class in high school.
When The Outsiders was published in 1967 Hinton changed her name to S.E. Hinton.

"I'm a character writer. Some writers are plot writers...I have to begin with people. " - S.E. Hinton
1st Person (I)3rd person (observer)omniscient (knows everything)
The way a character views this world around him.
As a Group:
1. Go through each page you marked.
2. Share the selection with your group.
3. Decide where you should classify it on
your tree map.
what you know about the
how you know it. (What page
number was your evidence on?)
On your desk:

1. Your copy of
The Outsiders
2. Character Tree Map
3. Pencil
Think about the most important details of each scene.
Decide how to present these scenes visually in a way that will communicate the important details to the audience.
Decide where each character should be in each scene.
Decide what each character would be thinking in each scene.
Work with another group to create a “slide show” of chapter 4.
Group A: Scenes 1, 3, 5
Group B: Scenes 2 and 4

Make sure the audience can “see” what is happening in each scene.

During each scene, two characters will unfreeze and say what he is thinking and feeling and then freeze again.
The slide show will depict the following 5 scenes:
The blue Mustang pulls into the park
The moment when you know there will be a fight
Ponyboy’s head is being held under water
Johnny attacks Bob with a knife
Bob is dead
Keep composition tight – actors should be close together.
Consider the relationships characters have to one another.
Exaggerate the emotional expression your character would be feeling.
Stagger body heights – it is visually boring when everyone is standing or sitting.
French word tableaux – visual presentation

A frozen scene or pose that captures a physical or emotional relationship

No talking during the scene
In the back of your I.N.:
1. Chapter 4 Response:
Discuss how people in general react in when they panic.
How did the characters in this scene react when they panicked?
How should they have reacted?
Why do people not react more rationally when they panic?
How can we train ourselves to respond positively in negative situations?
2. Chapters 5 - 7 Constructed Response:
How is Ponyboy affected by the setting? Give two specific examples from the novel that support your thinking.
Learning Target: I can analyze how the
shape and drive the
Reciprocal Teaching:

1. Look over the Fiction RT 4-door.
What changes did you notice?

2. What does independent RT look like? Sound like?
Group Reciprocal Teaching:
any confusions or misunderstandings.

Find similar events.
Decide what key events should be included in your ISWBST. Complete the ISWBST graphic organizer.
: Share the examples of perseverance you noticed in the chapter. Decide on 2 events that were the strongest examples of perseverance and explain why.
Discuss what you think will happen next. What clues in the text make you think this.

When you finish, you may discuss your questions.
Learning Target:
I can analyze how the setting and the characters shape and drive the plot.
I can explain how the plot reveals the character.
Your Story Element triangle should look like this:

Step 1:
Complete the 3 Story Elements boxes (1. event, 2. protagonist, 3. setting).
Step 2:
Use textual evidence to discuss and analyze the interactions of the Story Elements.
Step 3:
In a complete sentence, complete your analysis arrows.
Focus Question:
Which event, to you, had the greatest impact on Ponyboy's decision to "stay gold" or "get tough"? Why?
Seminar Ground Rules:
1. Listen by looking at the speaker, perhaps taking notes, and not talking while someone is talking.

2. Speak loudly enough for everyone to hear, asking questions as well as making statements, while looking at the other participants.

3. Think deeply about the ideas and values expressed in the dialogue, examining the various perspectives with an open mind.

4. Refer to the text by citing specific details and quoting actual passages to support a point of view.

5. Address other participants respectfully by using their names, agreeing or disagreeing constructively, and making connections to others' comments.
Learning Target: I can analyze how particular story elements interact through examples from The Outsiders, specifically how character and plot interact to evoke theme.
Purpose for Devices: After thoughtful observation, outer circle participants will contribute to the dialogue of the seminar by adding at least 2 questions, comments of support for an argument, or pieces of T.E.
