  1. Send a copy of the PDF to each student. Tell your students that they must write a letter describing how one of these characters has changed.
  2. Give your students some time to finish their letters.
  3. Let your students read their letters out loud to the class. The other students must decide which character they are writing for.
  4. Let students try to correct each other and help them along the way.
  5. If you want, you can vote on who has the best letter or the biggest change etc.
