A one-page handout with directions for a great exercise in getting to know the main characters in Dicken's "Great Expectations," as well as ways those characters embody theme and tone.
This "mini-project" requires students to search for compelling quotations in the text and explain what the quotation reveals about the character(s). An excellent exercise if you need students to review the novel after having read it previously.
This could be expanded into a more complex project; however, I use it as a quick "mini-project" that takes my IB and AP seniors just a couple of days to complete. Lower level students might need a week.
