2. Have the partners exchange letters and respond to their partner's letter from their own character's point of view. Have them expound on the topics their partner brought up.
For example: One partner writes from Opal's point-of-view and the other writes from Jay Berry's point-of-view. Opal could write that she found a dog at the beginning of the summer and named him Winn Dixie. She could write that Winn Dixie helped her make friends with the people in the town. Jay Berry could write back that he had spent his summer with his dog, Rowdy catching monkeys. He could tell how Rowdy absolutely did not help him catch the monkeys because he tried to hunt them. He could also tell how he ended up catching the monkeys.
