6th Grade Students Study Literary Elements

Mr. Wiley's 6th grade ELA students are in the midst of a unit on literary elements and narratives.  This week students analyzed the difference between direct and indirect characterization.  Students also spent a class period reading various examples of indirect characterization from different novels and examined which method of characterization the author used.  Students learned the acronym STEAL - speech, thoughts, effects on others, actions, and looks - and applied this method to the characterization examples.
