Readers as Flies on the Wall?...What profound conversations would Hamlet have with Romeo? Or Steinbeck's George Milton with Walter from A Raisin in the Sun? What would the most pathetic character in literary history have to say to the most despicable or the most admirable if they could both leap off the pages of their respective novels or short stories to meet in a world of your student's making. The possibilites for profound and perceptive conversation are limitless and your students have an opportunity to demonstrate in depth understanding of a novel or a short story's theme(s), conflicts, plot elements, symbols, characterization and more.
