This lively set of three no-prep activities inspires students to connect literary characters to the modern world. Use them for any novel!
As they tweet, blog and program cell phones for their chosen characters, students will not only analyze character traits, but consider larger modern questions of style, marketability and audience.
These fun activities can function independently as lesson plans for any novel, be bundled in a unit series for a media-focused arc of activities, or be printed at the last minute for a substitute teacher.
