A Learning Activity is a strategy a teacher chooses to actively
engage students in learning a concept or skill using a digital tool/resource.
After reading a short story or a novel, students will be able to take on the point of view of the main character and respond to questions as their chosen character.
This activity was created as a result of the Arts COS Resource Development Summit.
Students will be able to present a point of view outside of their own personal point of view.
After reading a short story or a novel, have students pick a main character that they want to become.
When the student becomes the character, have them sit in a chair and have the other students sit on the ground around them. Students on the ground may ask the student in the chair any question. The student in the chair MUST respond as their character.
The teacher may want to provide a list of pre-approved questions to get the questions started.
-What are you most proud of?
-What scares you?
-What do you do to have fun?
-What do you do when you are bored?
-Who is your best friend?
Evaluate the students based on how well they responded as their character and if they referenced an event in their story for their answers.
Students will need to have read a short story or novel.
