HALLOWEEN CHARACTER ASSIGNMENT FOR ANY NOVEL OR SHORT STORY: Pumpkin Carving
Bring Halloween into your English class by skipping the traditional character analysis, and trying this fun alternative assignment instead! After students have read a fictional short story or novel, have them carve Halloween pumpkins for 2 characters and explain their reasons with support from the text! Students will be required to show an understanding of symbolism as the carvings must relate in someway to the characters' personality or a theme that develops in the reading.
