This would make a nice companion piece to read along with Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood and then conclude with projects that invite students to consider positions characters would take on contemporary issues such as those found on ProCon.org.
What does chosen/assigned character value? Which issues would characters from those novel support? Which would they challenge? Why? In the person of a chosen character, develop a persuasive argument to support or refute the arguments for or against a social issue that is being challenged in the Supreme Court.
Or, have a character in Book A challenge a position held by a character in Book B. Conduct Spar Debates in the persona of the assigned or chosen character.
