“I can practice playing my character in my small group” “Be” your character Take turns ‘being’ your character while other group members ask you questions Use the role for support, but try not to read it Improvise and be creative as long as you stay true to your character’s perspective Questions to ask: Who are you? What organizations are you in? What do you think about the General Strike? What are your larger economic beliefs? What other characters are you connected to? How would you like the strike to be resolved?
