Use this list of speed dating questions to spark your imagination. You can use speed dating in your classroom to analyze characters in detail or as a get to know you activity for kids. I use mine the first days of school. I put vases with flowers on the desks, play instrumental music in the background, set a timer and then let the kids have fun. Spending 30-45 seconds with each person is ideal. If you are pretending to be a character, have the kids draft questions or make the questions fit your story or novel.
