The "five ways" and "six types" sound to me like elements that you have discussed in class and should have in your notes.

Authors show character by how a person looks, speaks, behaves; by his/her possessions; and by how other characters react to that person.

As for "types" of characterizations, I suppose that some people are based on reputation (Ewell, Cunningham, Radley; "Haverford, a name in Maycomb county synonymous with jackass), and others are based on Scout's actual observations and interactions with the people.
