Product Description
This simulation exercise asks students to create skits of child play. Students break up into groups of 3 to 4 students per group. They are handed directions to create a 1 to 2 minute skit, simulating child's play, using 4 designated objects.

The debriefing of this fun simulation allows students to see Hawthorne's character of Pearl, not as a demon, but as an object of scorn, due to her mother's wrongdoing.

There is a lot laughing during this exercise! However, students come away understanding the difference between direct and indirect characterization in fiction.

I have successfully used this exercise with both regular and Honors English classes.
