You have chosen an excellent book for characterization.  I would definitely look at the enotes lessons.  They are very good!  I also suggest having kids track the characters as they read.  They will realize that some characters are round and some are flat, and some are static and some are dynamic.  Then discuss how the author uses that.

I think that part of this goes back to the basic premise of how to plan a lesson.  The link below is a discussion page where this topic is addressed by different teachers.  It might help you in this process.  I think that the development of an objective in Lowry's work is going to be based on what exactly you want to bring out in the instruction of character.  An objective might be to for students to be able to identify specific instances of character evolution in the text.  Another objective could be to assess character actions taken based on different criteria.  I think that much of this is going to be dependent on what you want students to get out of the three week unit.  Planning backwards might help here.  At the end of three weeks, what exactly do you what students to know about Lowry's work regarding characterization?  Writing this is writing the objective of learning and can help guide the lesson planning process.
