Have you ever done a novel study and the kids just 'don't get into it'?

If so, this just might be a solution:

Allow the characters to come alive through the use of Google+ 

By creating student managed, Google+ profiles for each of novel's characters, students are given the opportunity to truly experience the story from each character's point of view.  

Through their bio entries, posts, comments, events, circles and even hangouts, students are able to adopt the persona, uncovering a fresh new perspective when studying literature.
