Product Description
Role playing isn't just for young students. This engaging discussion strategy has students "become" a character in order to understand the importance of perspective in conflict and literature. Groups of students are assigned varying roles, or perspectives. They study their role and come to the conversation as if they are that person. Their conversation focuses on an essential question of the unit you've chosen. They then debate and justify their perspective using evidence. The activity ultimately asks them to synthesize their ideas after having heard multiple, varying, and often conflicting perspectives.

This resource includes lesson plan, an example for a Social Studies class, an example for a Literature class, a blank template, a preparation worksheet, a scoring rubric, and a synthesis writing piece. This could easily be tailored to your unit's concept, essential questions, and varying grade levels.
