Your secondary readers compare what they learn in Fannie Flagg's Alabama-based book Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe with the experiences of elderly Alabamans that they interview. (Pairing Flagg's book with Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird is suggested as an extension.). Though the resource here is focused specifically on Alabama, you could find a reading that reflects life in your region and have your class interview senior citizens to compare real experiences in your area to those in the story. The whole class develops interview questions to ask. Collaborative groups then conduct interviews and produce a video presentation from their research.
