Product Description
This project is a great way to practice close reading and characterization skills with students. You can successfully have students complete this assignment before OR after reading, though I have found it more valuable to do beforehand. Students are assigned one of the prologue pilgrims and create a visual representation of that character. They are require to demonstrate skills involved with:
*Citing direct and indirect references from the text (MLA format)
* Citing visual characteristics from the text that helped support their artistic
choices
*Defining any unknown words or phrases from the text
*Explaining any ironic qualities related to that specific character
*Presenting their character to the class in the order they appear in the prologue

I typically have students complete this assignment before reading. After they have completed their characters, we begin reading the prologue. I read the very beginning and end (where no characters are discussed), and the students read their assigned part, along with presenting their visual character at that time.
