International Culture Day-Students bring a food, beverage, piece of music, or poetry pertaining to the Country or birthplace which they have chosen to base their character upon. The items should be presented with full knowledge of their origin.
Character Swap Day-After viewing the works of the other students, take one day to allow the other students to do impressions of someone else's character. This will give the students another view upon which they may wish to expand.
Ellis Island Day Trip-Teacher will set-up the necessary itinerary. This activity may be more beneficial if done early on in the course. A follow up to this trip might be an improvisation based upon the physical inspection process that the immigrants had to endure.
Immigrant Chat Day- Perhaps a great deal of impact would be gained from speaking to a survivor of a Nazi concentration camp who found relief in America. This may be possible through the Holocaust museum in Queens, N.Y.
