1 Characterization Foldable

2 Characterization Foldable Directions
Cut out the entire perimeter of the foldable. To begin constructing the foldable, fold it in half twice (rectangles, not triangles). Now, open it back up and fold it in half backwards so that it forms a triangle with the written parts on the outside. With the sympathetic triangle pointing downward, bring in the flat triangle. Do the same with static on the other side. Finally, fold the top overhang down, too. Glue the foldable into the notebook by putting glue on the back of the minor/sympathetic square only. Glue it as shown and label and/or decorate the front tab. It should open as shown.

3 Characterization Terms
Protagonist – the main character in a story (in a work of literature) Antagonist – the character or force in conflict with the protagonist

4 Characterization Terms
Round character: Well-developed Has many traits, both good and bad Easily defined because we know many details about the character Realistic and life-like Most major characters are round

5 Characterization Terms
Flat character: Not well-developed Does not have many traits Not easily defined in a single sentence because we know little about the character Sometimes stereotyped Most minor characters are flat

6 Characterization Terms
Dynamic Character : Undergoes an important change in personality in the story Comes to some sort of realization that permanently changes the character A change occurs within the character because of the events of the story The protagonist is usually dynamic, but not always Static Character: Remains the same throughout the story Although something may happen to the character, it does not cause the character to change Minor characters are usually static

7 Characterization Terms
Direct characterization is how an author tells his or her reader about a character. Direct characterization occurs when the author specifically reveals traits about the character in a direct, straightforward manner.  Example: Karen is bright, energetic and helpful.   Joe was motivated by money. He had no use for love or family. Indirect characterization is the process by which the writer shows the character's personality through his/her speech, actions and appearance Example: I jumped up, knocking over my chair, and had reached the door when Mama called, 'Pick up that chair, sit down again, and say excuse me. What can you tell about the mother from reading this passage?
