This activity is designed as an introduction to PBL(Problem Based Learning) - style Group Work, Collaboration, and Critical Thinking. In it, students are assigned the rolls of some popular YA (Young Adult) Fiction Characters. Acting as those characters, they must solve a problem and present their solution to the class. It can be used with or without the Team Contract (available FREE in my store!). This assignment takes roughly 30 minutes depending on class size. It addresses SOL Standards 7.1 (Communication), 7.5 (Reading Comprehension), and 7.9 (Writing).
Additionally, this could be used as an activity at the end of the year after testing or when you have some extra time and need a quick, stand alone activity that addresses standards and is engaging!
