Product Description
Looking to add life, enthusiasm, EMPATHY -- (and, ok, maybe even a little bit of hot-button scandal!) -- into your novel discussion? Transform your classroom into a high-energy daytime talk show as shocking text secrets are revealed while students assume the personae of various fictional characters from major American novels for a spirited in-class, in-character debate.

This digital download walks you through how to adapt this activity for any major study of fiction, and includes sample templates for plug-and-play use TODAY for ten major American novels and plays, including:

• The Scarlet Letter - Nathaniel Hawthorne
• The Crucible - Arthur Miller
• Adventures of Huckleberry Finn - Mark Twain
• The Awakening - Kate Chopin
• Ethan Frome - Edith Wharton
• A Streetcar Named Desire - Tennessee Williams
• A Raisin in the Sun - Lorraine Hansberry
• Death of a Salesman - Arthur Miller
• Their Eyes Were Watching God - Zora Neale Hurston
• The Great Gatsby - F. Scott Fitzgerald

This resource includes a comprehensive 3-page lesson planning walk-through for how to use this Talk Show inspired classroom for a ready-made debate, complete with reflection question prompts, team-based scoring ideas, sample lesson flow dialogue, and in-class scaffolding strategies. And the best part -- this activity is infinitely re-usable for in-class, in-character debate of ANY major novel or drama.

Transform your classroom into an episode of Maury Povich complete with shocking envelope reveals ("Arthur Dimmesdale: you ARE the father!") Restore some sense of order with simulation reflection activities inspired by Jerry Springer's "Final Thought." And get your students genuinely excited to see the world through the eyes of some of literature's greatest characters.

Lots of laughs, loads of learning, and tons of fun. This is the type of activity that puts students in charge of their own learning to drive engagement through the roof!
