Transcript of Characterization in TKAM

Characterization in To Kill a Mockingbird Let's look at an example Bellringer Now, it's your turn! Atticus Finch Chacterization is... Indirect Characterization Direct Characterization What is Characterization? when the author creates a character for a narrative.

There are two ways an author can create characterization, either directly or indirectly. This is when an author directly states a trait about a particular character.

Ex: The girl was quiet.

The boy was honest. A great way to remember how an author can use indirect characterization is the mnemonic device STEAL:
Speech - What they say & how they speak
Thoughts - What is revealed in their private
Effects on others - How do other characters feel
about that character?
Actions - What is the character doing? How do
they behave?
Looks - How do they look? How do they
dress? "You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view...until you climb into his skin a walk around in it."

What does this say about Atticus? What does he urge Scout to do? Does he word it in a way she will understand? Pick a character to either compare or contrast yourself with from TKAM. Use the list on the board as a reference, and create a character page decorated with words or traits that relate you and make you different from the character of your choice.

Be prepared to share you character page with the class! When you come in, take out a sheet of paper and work on a character chart. Jot down the names of the main characters in the first twelve chapters (Jem, Atticus, Scout, Boo, etc), and write at least three details about their personality. You have five minutes after the bell rings to do this!
Be prepared to share your details with the class, because after we will be making a cohesive list on the board
