Our ELA Facebook friend Heather Nicole Teraila just posted the results of a super-cute characterization activity her students completed on The Outsiders and, with her permission, we all get to enjoy her students’ work:
This activity, inspired by the popular Funko Pop! vinyl figures that many of our students collect, can be used with any work of literature. The idea was created by Play Like a Pirate author Quinn Rollins, who offers a template and more fun examples on his blog:
To increase the rigor, I’d add a requirement to include a line of text (with page number) from the work we’re studying that reveals that specific character’s philosophy and maybe ask what three accessories students would include with their Pop! characters. What else would you add to the assignment? Leave a reply below!
Teach on, everyone.
