Here is a plan that would work as the centerpiece of a short unit on characterization or supplement study of any piece of fiction. It contains a chart in which readers track examples of characterization from their reading and note what each example tells about the character. All types of characterization are included in the chart. A half-page excerpt from Ann Rinaldi's In My Father's House provides an opportunity to practice. Chart is generic, so you could use it with any text.
