Comparing Characters’ Bedrooms

🔓 This is an unlocked sample! Byrdseed.TV is open for new memberships through May 31st, 2024. Join today!


Students will compare and contrast two characters with similar desires by filling their rooms with items that reflect those desires.


  1. Students note a character's main desire and describe items in their room that reflect that desire.
  2. Then, they pick another character with a similar desire. They'll describe the items that character's room, including one that will go against Character A.
  3. Character A tours Character B's room. They note how some items reflect a shared goal. But then they note a difference.
  4. Character A reflects on their experience by writing a diary entry about how their desire has (or hasn't) changed.


The registration window closes on May 31st, 2024
