This seems like a pretty cool assignment my wife created: get students into groups of three, and then have them do some research related to a big decision they have to make, and then make some choices based on the book. The assignment forces students to imagine themselves in the story and understand the decisions characters made.
Kind of how every teacher who teaches The Things They Carried has to have students imagine what they'd carry, every teacher who uses The Day of the Triffids by John Wyndham should be using this assignment, even if there's only a few of you left.
