Product Description
Assuming the persona of a character in literature and writing his or her journals is a great way to engage students and a fun and creative way to assess their understanding of the play.


This is an activity that I use after completing discussion of Act 1 of A Raisin in the Sun; however, it could be used at any point in the play.

The assignment requires students to assume the persona of

---Walter

---Ruth

---Beneatha

---Mama

Students then create two journal entries that the character might write on the Friday and Saturday evenings of Act 1.

They are to address some of the themes and use the symbolism that is apparent.

Includes graphics,

photos of the characters,

a brainstorm chart, and

a scoring rubric.



Thank you for your consideration of this resource.
