4 Skill Review: Characterization Characterization means the way an author communicates information about a character Two Types: Direct – TELLS US “Doug was very lazy!” Indirect – SHOWS US “Doug was bored with the TV show, but the remote control was across the room, so he just watched it anyway.”
5 Big Idea Characterization: Direct and Indirect The difference between direct and indirect characterization is the same as the difference between telling and showing. One is simply the author telling the reader what the character is like. The other is where the author shows what the character's like. Examples: Peter was very lazy, and would never shift himself more than was absolutely necessary. vs. Peter was bored with the TV program, but the remote control was unfortunately across the room, so he just watched it anyway. Jan would be home soon, and she could fetch it for him then.5
6 Skill Review: Character Motivation Motivation means the drive that causes a character to do or say something. Two Types: Intrinsic/Internal – comes from within the character “Sarah practiced a lot for basketball because she had a personal goal of getting an athletic scholarship to college.” Extrinsic/External – comes from outside the character “Sarah made sure to do her English homework because she knew her parents checked the class web-site each week.”
