This assignment is geared specifically toward helping students understand and emulate voice in writing. This project should be assigned before beginning the book. Allow students to view the Character PowerPoint and choose the character they find most interesting. They will capture this character's thoughts and write a journal from their point of view for the events in the book. My students really surprised me with the depth of their understanding though this assignment. It also kept students engaged during the reading. Pictures also help the more visual students to keep the characters straight.
