1. Find pictures and diagrams of a B-17 bomber like Carl's Lucky Doll. Study them to get a sense of how little space there was in the aircraft and how difficult it would be to move about quickly in an emergency. Write an essay or poem that expresses your impressions of Carl's experience during that fatal flight.

2. Research the role of B-17 bombers in the Second World War. Report on an issue like the strategy of bombing, crew training, offensive and defensive armaments, casualties, or the plane's contribution to victory.

3. Read what a philosopher or famous performer has to say about why human beings dance or what they feel as they dance. Compare this description to the explanation about his dance that Carl gives to Marsh and Willy.

4. The final paragraph ends with Marsh reporting rumors about the fate of Helen and Carl. Write a story, in Marsh's voice, telling what became of Helen and Carl. Use one of the rumors or invent your own scenario.

5. Imagine you are Helen. Write a diary illustrating how your impressions of Carl change as you get to know him.
