1. Pavlo/Pavlov Parallel Poster
Have students review Pavlo's character traits and then go to the library and research Ivan Pavlov and this classical conditioning response theory. Allow students to make their own parallels between Pavlov's dog and Pavlo, asking them to make a poster showcasing the dehumanizing yet interesting parallels between these two creatures/characters. This concept that Pavlo's name may have been used on purpose by the playwright can also be analyzed in greater depth by writing students.
