At the end of the story, Hyde is found dead, but what about Jekyll? Assuming Utterson does not reveal what he reads in the narrative, police will search for the missing person.
In this activity, students will combine analysis with creative writing to create a police report for the search for Henry Jekyll. They will comb the text for clues then apply that information to real-life report writing, in this case, a police report. They will also create interviews with made-up character who may have seen or heard something about what happened to Jekyll.
Great fun way to dig deep into the text. This is designed as a group project, including a presentation either filmed or given before the class.
