    A Character Life Box // Janet Anders

    I have not actually used this resource. However, I have done student projects similar to this with great success. It is a fun way to present a report. Students seem to enjoy researching more when they know they will have a different mode of presenting their information.

In this lesson, one of a multi-part unit from ARTSEDGE, students work in pairs to create a "life box" for a character in the play "The Shakespeare Stealer." They collect five representative props or costume pieces and write a poem about the character. Other students must interpret the clues and determine which character is represented by the life box.
