ABSTRACT

As an innovative approach to teaching the novel ‘The Scarlet Letter’ by Nathaniel Hawthorne, this web-based role play simulation engages students by placing them directly into the conflict of the story, thus increasing motivation. The story comes alive as students interact with one another via their personas. Through play, students gain insight into character portrayal by understanding the inherent motivation of characters to recognise real life psychological and sociological conditions of these otherwise fictional entities. Students benefit by acquiring a deeper understanding of character, theme, language and historical perspective.
