Objective: Examine how an author can show us who a character indirectly.

Mapping the Captain (JF five brief entries in mind map form): 

Explain how Hernando Tellez shows us who Captain Torres is using indirect characterization. We have talked about five ways that a writer can give us hints and seen that you can remember them using STEAL.

Give us one briefly-explained example under the heading of Speech, Thoughts, Effect on Others, Actions and Looks. (His thoughts might be hard to see from the outside… so if you can’t find a way, that’s all right).

The Most Revealing STEAL (JF): In a paragraph of at least 500 characters, identify which of our five STEAL techniques was most important in showing who the captain really is. Good examples should include a clear claim, big reasons and specific examples!
