PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

What would Macbeth, Frankenstein's creature, Hamlet, Grendel, or any number of other literary characters say if they sat down on the psychiatrist's couch? This assignment allows students to answer this question.

-This is a character analysis activity that can be used with any work of literature. It requires students to choose a character (ideally a main character) and do the following:

★ Examine the text and make inferences about their character's psyche (his or her fears, dreams, goals, etc.)
★ Draft a number of questions a psychiatrist would ask their character
★ Construct a well-written dialogue between psychiatrist and their chosen literary character that reveals the character's inner thoughts and emotions. Students should be creative, but they should also ground the conversation in the text.
★ Present their dialogue in front of the class.

This assignment can be give to individual students, or they could work in pairs. It involves writing, character analysis, public speaking, and even dramatic performance. I included the assignment itself and a helpful rubric. One last point: this assignment can also help combat the stigma that is still associated with mental health services.
