An engaging, after reading activity, this assignment requires students to take a deeper look into family dynamics in The Westing Game. They are asked to choose a family from the novel--the Wexlers, the Hoos, or the Theodorakises--and imagine what it would be like if they had the opportunity to attend individual and group counseling sessions. What questions might the counselor ask? How would the family members answer? Using evidence from the text and making logical inferences based on the evidence is critical.
A rubric is included.
