This characterization activity is a new and fun way to engage and challenge your students to improve their ability to understand characterization in a text like a novel or a short story. The resource includes everything you need to teach characterization and practice using a fun escape room style challenge.

Included in your purchase:

  • A teacher presentation that shares information on the different types of characters, why understanding characterization is important, and how an author can reveal the personality of the characters with examples.
  • An original narrative backstory that puts students within the story and sets up the escape room challenge.
  • A presentation to guide the lesson and activity with instructional slides, activity prompts, the narrative story text, the story conclusion slides, and an answer key for easy review.
  • An interactive escape room-style challenge where students must use their characterization skills to complete the challenge.

How it works:

  • Start by using the presentation slides to guide you through each element of the lesson and activity. The slides will help you teach characterization skills, introduce the story and challenge, and review the answers.
  • Read the narrative story as a class to hook students and introduce the challenge.
  • Once you taught the characterization skills and read the story, students are ready to try the escape room-style reading challenge!
  • When students successfully solve the challenge, you can share the conclusion slides which will wrap up the narrative story.
