In this 4-page activity, Tripping Through Time, Middle and High School students use their thinking and writing skills to reveal their understanding of the character, conflict and other elements of literature in the piece that they are studying through narrative writing.
As the character of their choice from the reading, they are transported to a totally unfamiliar time and geographic area. After researching this different time and place, the students will write a personal narrative comparing and contrasting both societies. Their responses must reveal the point of view of the character that they chose to personify, not their own.
The students’ completed writing will show their comprehension of the reading, of the material that they gathered in their research, and they will strengthen their higher level thinking skills.
