Students will write letters as Stanley Yelnats from Louis Sachar's Holes, empathizing with him in order to get into the role.
The first letter will be fabricated, describing a fun summer camp like the imaginary Camp Fun and Games of Stanley's youth. This will allow students to relate to Stanley, who does not want his mother to worry.
The second will draw upon key details from the text and describe the harsh reality of life at Camp Green Lake.
Write narratives to develop real or imagined experiences or events using effective technique, descriptive details, and clear event sequences.
