The Things You Can Read welcomes you and thanks you for your readership. We, here at The Things You Can Read, ask your help, if you visit our site regularly, please follow us either via email or Google Friend Connect.  Launched on June 7, 2012, our site has already attracted a great deal of attention.  One of the goals of the site is to feature reviews of Children's Picture Books, Young Adult novels and Adult Literary Fiction/Nonfiction.  A second goal for the blog is to be a resource for teachers of English and writing--with examples of student created writing, writing tips, resource links, and the opportunity to pick the brain of a seasoned English teacher.  To spice things up...every now and then, we'll also include random quotes and thoughts on education and life in general, but our ultimate goal is to reach out into the blogosphere and be a "Book Whisperer" and "Writing Whisperer" to children and adults of all ages.   Thank you for your readership.  Here is to a lifetime filled with reading and writing.

Interactive Notebook Direct Vs. Indirect & Character Traits

Interactive Notebook Direct Vs. Indirect 

Page 18 Right Side of Notebook

Use the Literary Terms Glossary labeled LITERARY HANDBOOK in the back of Prentice Hall Literature Language and Literacy Book on your desk.
DIRECT and INDIRECT Characterization are defined under CHARACTERIZATION.

Direct Characterization: The author directly states the character's traits or characteristics.

Indirect Characterization: The author indirectly depends on the reader to draw conclusions about the character's traits.  The author can achieve this by telling what other characters in the story say and think about another character.


Character Traits are WORDS (usually adjectives) used to describe how a character acts during the story or work of literature. Think Personality traits...these traits are often viewed as GOOD OR BAD TRAITS.

Happy Reading & Writing
